6.10.2016 - Christopher Burke: 'The mysterious case of the curtailed g: an outsider's view of Danish lettering'.

Typ-forelæsning
Torsdag den 6. oktober, kl. 17.00
Auditorium 90.2.01

Gratis adgang og ingen tilmelding

The Copenhagen cityscape is marked by lettering that features a minuscule g which – to foreigners' eyes – has been cut short. It is missing its lower half. This talk will take the peculiar g, which has become known as the 'Danish g', as a starting point to examine style in Danish lettering, from the nineteenth century up to the digital era.

Isotype was initially called the Vienna Method of Pictorial Statistics. Developed during the 1920s for education in a socialist context, it was intended to ‘represent social facts pictorially’ and to bring ‘dead statistics’ to life by making them visually attractive and memorable. The creators of Isotype, led by Otto Neurath, concentrated on social themes such as housing, economy, and health, and so their work retains lessons for us today. In the international scope of their work we can perceive themes which seem to be increasingly relevant: globalization, social welfare, war and migration, and the relationship of trade to international politics.

Wednesday 25. February 2015
With a strong sense of history, but no intention in simply recreating it, Grilli Type designs typefaces with an attitude. Co-founder Thierry Blancpain will talk about the Swiss design heritage and how current Swiss designers, including Grilli Type, relate to it – as well as how Grilli’s typefaces find their place in the world.

Per Mollerup: Wayshowing>Wayfinding
Mandag 15. december 2014

Wayshowing støtter wayfinding. Wayfinding er et anliggende for besøgende. Wayshowing er designerens professionelle disciplin. God wayshowing er brugerorienteret: tager sit udgangspunkt i brugerens situation. Der er tale om second order understanding, hvor designeren prøver at forstå, hvad brugeren forstår. Når vi finder vej i ukendt territorium bruger vi alle en eller flere af ni wayfinding strategier. De fleste af os ved ikke, at vi kender og bruger disse strategier. De er unknown knowns.
