The Politics of Type

BY CARIMA EL-BEHAIRY
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"Typography influences every day decisions, perceptions and opinions, so why would it not influence the most important decision a nation makes – electing a leader?"

In The Politics of Type from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, partner of Buffalo-based P22 Type Foundry, Inc., Carima El-Bahairy breaks down the relationship between political campaign typography and campaign results. From Abraham Lincoln to Richard Nixon to Barack Obama to the 2016 Presidential Candidates, El-Bahairy presents an analysis of the effectiveness of various graphic identities employed on campaign buttons, bumper stickers and logos. She even predicts some 2016 winners based on their logos...time will tell!

The Beauty of Type and Ligatures

BY JOHN LYTTLE
@ VOL 32 ON DEC 06, 2017

His passion for digital type, elegant ligatures, and creating effective publications led John Lyttle to taking a step back down a different path.  For a change, he had a chance to take more control over the type he loves and produce it by hand.  This change of pace offered this presenter a whole new flavor of reward.

Our Type: the faces of, well, everything.

BY ADAM WADDINGHAM
@ VOL 34 ON DEC 05, 2017

Typefaces surround everything we do. The words on signs, transport, documents, and shops. They tell a story. The designs - created, influenced, or revived - are rooted in historical references and Adam Waddingham will take a whistle-stop tour through the many faces that surround us on a daily basis.

IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild

BY HUNTER NOACK
@ VOL 26 ON JUN 18, 2018

IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild is an outdoor concert series in stunning landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. Hunter Noack brings a 9-foot Steinway grand piano to the middle of forests, fields, calderas and historical sites for classical music concerts. To meet the acoustical challenges of performing in the wild, music is transmitted to the concert-goers via wireless headphones. No longer confined to seats, they can explore the landscape, wander through secret glens, lie in sunny meadows, and roam old growth forests.
