Christian Schwartz

Credibility, Legibility, and Style

Christian Schwartz will discuss how previous technologies shaped the most common news text faces of the 19th and 20th centuries, and how contemporary designers can use readers’ feelings about the aesthetic imposed by these limitations to our advantage.

This talk is scheduled for Saturday, June 13 at 10:00am as part of the main Typographics conference schedule. You must register for the Typographics conference to attend.
