Speaker Series: How Culture Affects Typography

Nikki Villagomez will be coming to Idaho for a look into how culture affects typography and gets incorporated into our everyday lives. In her presentation, Nikki will use pictures taken throughout her travels to discuss the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices based on location. Ever see a sign or some other form of local typography that you think is really interesting and unique? Well you can be a part of Nikki’s presentation by sending photos of what you think is interesting typography for possible use in her Idaho presentation. For the next two weeks be apart of shaping Nikki’s presentation by photographing the everyday typography that makes Idaho, well . . . Idaho. Photographs submitted can be graffiti, manhole covers, hand lettering, local signs or whatever catches your eye that feels interesting.

Email: Nikki.Villagomez@dhgllp.com

Please submit all photos by Friday, March 15th to ensure your photo will be part of the presentation.
