Marina Chaccur

A type of perspective

June 15, Saturday 15:00 – SALT Galata

In this talk Marina will discuss and illustrate different aspects of a career in the type business. It is not only about designing typefaces, but mostly how to use this knowledge as a starting point and working with options around it. The topic will continue with a turn via the world of type ornaments and generation of digital patterns based on metal type setting.
