How to Fall in Love with Typography

Ellen Lupton

MAY 29 • 2:00 - 2:45 PM

Vancouver Playhouse

Ellen wrote the classic guide Thinking with Type in 2004.

Creating the all-new third edition of this best-selling book required her to question everything. What assumptions are baked into the English-speaking design vocabulary? How can type education become more forgiving? Where are the women in type design? What stories lurk behind basic forms such as spacing, capital letters and stroke contrast? Join Ellen as she answers these questions and shares tips, tools and insights for working with type.
