Graphic and typeface designer Andrew Byrom, contributor to 3D Typography, recently lectured for Tedx Talks at UCLA about the type he sees in everyday objects and how these observations influences his own letter making. He is on the faculty at Cal State Long Beach and teaches a design class at UCLA Extension.
Andrew sent us this description of the talk via email. “If we allow ourselves to view, and practice, one art-form through the lens of another—and truly embrace the associated constraints and processes—can we open up new and undefined directions for exploration? With this mind-set, ‘If H is a chair’, then what do the other 25 characters look like?”
