Think&Type | Laura Meseguer
Vectors, pencils and pens
Think&Type, promoted by Tipoteca Italiana, is a series of lectures and workshops involving graphic designers and design professionals for a passionate and stimulating narrative on typography and visual communication.
The second appointment is with the graphic and type designer Laura Meseguer, who lives and works in Barcelona.
Laura will present her work which is the result of an ongoing exploration of the relationship between calligraphy, lettering, typography and type design, as a fusion of all disciplines. The practice of type design is increasingly topical, but if it is intimately linked to the authentic expression of research and creativity, it implies personal paths of study and experiences linked to the typographic culture of the past and present.
The Spanish designer is internationally known and appreciated for the quality of her typographic research and her remarkable interdisciplinary mastery.
