Join AAF DC and Nikki Villagomez for a look into how culture affects typography and decision-making processes in everyday life. In her presentation, Nikki will use pictures taken throughout her travels to discuss the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices based on location. This is where YOU come in! Help shape the event’s content by sending in photos of your favorite DC typography.
Nikki will use the photos you send in to create her presentation. For the next few weeks, we challenge you to really look at the everyday typography that makes our area unique. The types of pictures we’d like to see submitted are graffiti, manhole covers, neon signs, historic signs, hand lettering, way finding, and local signs. Submit your photos now!
You can submit photos by Twitter: @nikki_vz // #DCType, Instagram: @nikkivz // #DCType (make sure your profiles are set to public so that Nikki will see your posts), or email Nikki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like any of your photos to be a part of the presentation, please submit all photos by Friday, July 21st.
Get the book! Nikki will have copies of her book Culture+Typography: How Culture Affects Typography for sale at the event for $20.
