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!

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.

Discovering The Value of Graphic Design

BY ELMA GIAVASES
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

It is no easy take to create art, to somehow materialize and express the thoughts in your head. Creating art expressing the thoughts in someone ELSE's head is something else entirely. Elma Giavases' early life and subsequent travels around the globe have given her a unique perspective on design and branding, and she now brings that expertise to the Kalispell community as a graphic designer with Highline Design.

After all, "great designs delight".
