Meet and hear Spain’s National Design Award recipient, Manuel Estrada, speak about his New York exhibition, his love of typography, and book design.

Because we have had such an incredible response to Manuel Estrada’s beautiful exhibit, we have invited him to come back to New York and speak about his work. Take a look at the photo gallery here.

Painting with letters is something Manuel Estrada has always been interested in, as in writing with images. It is a way of summing up all tools to turn design into an object to examine or an image to look at. Manuel will talk about his book covers, posters, and logos that are built around the same principle — typography as the main tool of graphic design.

Manuel Estrada is the recipient of the Spanish National Design Award. His Estudio, founded in 1989, has offices in Madrid and Miami, it has a team of 17 people and is specialized in corporate identity programs. He is a strong supporter of design as a fact of business development and its direct input in the success of corporations, and has also being dedicated to teaching in many different institutions. His work has been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Helsinki, Berlin, Lisbon, and many cities throughout Spain.
