ADI's Ahmedabad Chapter brings forth a dialogue, through a webinar on the “Many worlds of Type” in India.
Typography in a country like India with diverse Scripts has always been an area of study for Type and Graphic Designers. Typography holds a wide and visible visual culture in any Indian city - right from local signboards to advertising billboards.
Our esteemed panelists will take us through a journey of typography; in education, as used in commercial projects and in public spaces & art.
This webinar is highly recommended for design students and young professionals seeking different trajectories and versatility in Typography, in India.
