Nikki Villagomez: How Culture Affects Typography

Join designer, blogger, and typofile, Nikki Villagomez on Thursday, September 12th in New Haven for a look into how culture affects the decision processes of every day life. For those who mix words with images, this is as crucial to the message we convey as it is fascinating to an observer of those processes. In her presentation, Nikki will use pictures she has taken throughout her travels and talk about the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices based on location.

Thank you to all who have shared so many great images of type from across the state. This is shaping up to be a great event! You can check out some of the images on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #ConnecticutType.
