Typography empowers communication whether it’s a hand-painted sign, a silk-screened message, or letterpress printed word.
Gloria Kundrup and Meryl Vedros will present posters curated from the archives of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics — a selection that examines issues such as choice, gender inequality, war, and violence against women. Included are works by Barbara Kruger, Sister Corita Kent, the Guerilla Girls, and others, representing the global voice of women.
Gloria Kundrup is currently the Executive Director of the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography [HMCT] at ArtCenter College of Design, whose mission is to advance and elevate typography. As Director of HMCT/Archetype Press, ArtCenter’s unique and vibrant letterpress studio, she redefines the value of typography and analog technology in the digital landscape.
Meryl Vedros is the Creative Director and owner of Vedros Studio, a company specializing in brand design and field research. Her path as an entrepreneur and explorer has given her the opportunity to travel more than 30 countries as a nomad, speaker, and ethnographer.
