Tonight at Curiosity Club: "Words Can't Be Trusted" With Gus Nicklos
Posted on 21 April 2015
Tonight at the Hand-Eye Supply Curiosity Club we aim small but big - typography is a big idea to tackle! In his talk "Words Can't Be Trusted," designer and typographer Guy Nicklos will take us through the functions and forms of making and using fonts. Starts 6pm at the Hand-Eye Supply store, and streaming on the Curiosity Club homepage!
The word can mean different things depending on who speaks it and in what context. Typography is both technical and aesthetic. Designing a font is part craft / part engineering, and uses both sides of the brain.
I plan to draw a circle around fundamental and abstract–general and granular aspects of typography (and visual language). Far from linear or comprehensive, I will narrate a miscellaneum of form, discovery, ideas and moments threaded together over images.
