Designing Type has been described as a highly rational guide to the anatomy of letters. In this talk, author Karen Cheng will explain her obsessive interest in dissecting type, and describe her efforts—both successes and failures—to create the “perfect” introductory course to type design.

Karen Cheng is Professor of Visual Communication Design at the University of Washington in Seattle. She is the author of Designing Type, which (as of October 2020) is available in a new, fully revised and redesigned edition.
