For you graphic design geeks out there, Type Nite will be coming to New York City for the first time next Thursday, July 16 at Strand Bookstore. Established in Baltimore 11 years ago, Type Nite is a festive evening of typographic entertainment where visitors can engage face-to-face with some of today's leading graphic and typeface designers.
Listen to a panel featuring Tobias Frere-Jones, Peter Mendelsund, and Abbott Miller talk about "Mess-Ups and Do-Overs". Not in NYC? The event will be livestreamed on Strand's YouTube channel.
Plus, Bustler's sister site Archinect is currently giving away five copies of the newly published and revised Graphic Design: The New Basics, 2nd edition by Ellen Lupton and Jennifer Cole Phillips.
Learn all the details below.
What could possibly go wrong? In a discussion of "Mess-Ups and Do-Overs," Tobias-Frere Jones, Peter Mendelsund, and Abbott Miller will take you inside the creative process for a look at projects that went south or turned sour. Why learn from your own mistakes when you can learn from theirs?
Tobias Frere-Jones is one of the world's leading typeface designers. Book designer Peter Mendelsund is the author of What We See When We Read and Cover, a monograph about his design process. Abbott Miller is a partner at Pentagram and author of Abbott Miller: Design and Content, published by Princeton Architectural Press.
The conversation will be moderated by Ellen Lupton, Cooper Hewitt's senior curator of contemporary design and author of two new books, Graphic Design: The New Basics, 2nd Edition and How Posters Work, both released this summer.
A perfect evening for design professionals and students alike! Attendees will have the opportunity to win a free book by entering a raffle!
For those of you at home:
