Workshop: Pollak Rm 3XX (TBA)
10:00am–4:00pm Friday March 29, 2019
 
In this workshop we will investigate how graphic design tools and methods can be exploded and expanded, using softness and awkwardness as possible strategies, and playing with speed, movement, intimacy, distance. How can affect and embodiment be part of a design/typography practice? What does it mean do be legible (as a person) (as a text)? How can we soften our software? Queer typography? Join to experiment / experience through exercises and readings.
