1. Our speaker at the July 2012 CreativeMornings/NewYork was Kelli Anderson. (kellianderson.com)

    Kelli Anderson is an artist/designer and tinkerer who is always experimenting with new means of making images and experiences.

    She draws, photographs, cuts, prints, codes, and creates a variety of designed things for herself and others. From interactive paper to layered, experimental websites, everything begins and ends in her studio, which houses a 1919 letterpress and an assortment of other benevolent contraptions. She also teaches art history at Pratt every summer.
    CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types. Each event is free of charge, and includes a 20 minute talk, plus coffee! You can join us in numerous cities around the world. (creativemornings.com)

  2. Achieving a thorough grasp of typography can take a lifetime, but moving beyond the basics is within your reach right now. In this talk, we’ll learn how to look at typefaces with a discerning eye, different approaches to typographic planning, how typography impacts the act of reading, and how to choose and combine appropriate typefaces from an aesthetic and technical point of view. Through an understanding of our design tools and how they relate to the web as a medium, we can empower ourselves to use type in meaningful and powerful ways.

  3. How to introduce one of the most influential designers of the 20th century--one whose clear visual language has not only defined product design for decades, but also our fundamental understanding of design's potential and function? We're guessing our "Less and More" book and this video podcast interview is a good start.

    "Less and More: The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams"

    "Less but Better / Weniger, aber besser"

    This documentary is a humble exploration of the world of print, as it scratches the surface of its future. I consider this a work in progress. It is built upon interviews with individuals who are active in the Toronto print community and questions whether or not they expect to see the disappearance of the physical book within our lifetime. The act of reading a “tangible tome” has evolved, devolved, and changed many times over, especially in recent years. I hope for the film to stir thought and elicit discussion about the immersive reading experience and the lost craft of the book arts, from the people who are still passionate about reading on paper as well as those who are not.

    Please feel free to leave a comment below or email me directly at epiloguedoc@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you!
