Description

Strand with Type Directors Club presents Type Nite: "Mess-Ups and Do-Overs". Tobias-Frere Jones, Peter Mendelsund, and Abbott Miller join Ellen Lupton in discussion of design mistakes. What could possibly go wrong? In a discussion of "Mess-Ups and Do-Overs," Tobias-Frere Jones, Peter Mendelsund, and Abbott Miller will take you inside the creative process for a look at projects that went south or turned sour. Why learn from your own mistakes when you can learn from theirs? Tobias Frere-Jones is one of the world's leading typeface designers. Book designer Peter Mendelsund is the author of What We See When We Read and Cover, a monograph about his design process. Abbott Miller is a partner at Pentagram and author of Abbott Miller: Design and Content, published by Princeton Architectural Press. The conversation will be moderated by Ellen Lupton, Cooper Hewitt's senior curator of contemporary design and author of two new books, Graphic Design: The New Basics, 2nd Edition and How Posters Work, both released this summer.
