1-hour interactive event with extra 15-minute Q&A at the end (Zoom)
Learn how to decode the typography of everyday products. What does it reveal about changing mood and attitudes over the last five years? How does it motivate your decisions?
Typography is the voice of a brand and it creates a first impression before you even read the words. In this session we’ll work across a series of categories with real life examples. You’ll come away understanding how type is used to create meaningful stories and to code different emotions for a brand.
CAMERA ON! You're encouraged to have your camera on because this is a live and interactive Zoom session with fun activities and a dash of theatre. My sessions are created to feel like we're all in the same room together*.
