MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT PRESENTS TYPOGRAPHY: THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL APRIL 9th
An evening program exploring the topic of Typography with a cast of Miami characters including professors, entrepreneurs and publishers // 6 Luminaries x 20 Slides x 20 Seconds
(Miami, FL) On Wednesday, April 9, 2014 from 7 PM to 9P M on the Rooftop Garden in the Miami Design District, PechaKucha Miami will present its 26th volume on the topic of Typography in collaboration with the Miami Design District and American Institute of Graphic Arts Miami Chapter. Type bombards our daily life in a way that is inescapable. From the exquisite to the mundane, the bold and the beautiful, type plays a very important role in our lives because what we see is almost as important as what we read. Back to back, six speakers will present 20 images each for 20 seconds exploring the importance of type in our visual landscape. Music will be provided by DJ Andie Sweetswirl and photography by Peter Vahan.
