TypeForming: The Evolution of Typefaces - a Sheridan Campus Event

Monday, September 21, 2015 - 5:00pm to 9:00pm

An international panel of type and design experts will gather at Sheridan College to talk about the form of typography and how its history contributes to its future. The discussion will follow an exhibition and world premiere screening of a digitized and expanded film by Carl Dair, who designed Cartier – Canada’s first Latin typeface.

The panel discussion involves Matthew Carter, Rod McDonald, and Allan Haley and Charles Nix of Monotype, a leading global provider of typefaces and technologies. The panelists will discuss the film and the value of the abandoned process for type designers today, who create fonts using computer-based, digital technology.
