When Fri 15 Sep 1520
Where UQAM, Cœur des sciences
Who Veronika Burian, Jose Scaglione

Teamwork and collaboration is not new in the design field. But advancing technology has an immense and positive impact on the way collaborative design works nowadays. Large teams can now work seamlessly across time zones on the same project, effectively erasing cultural, linguistic, and geographic borders. In this context, there is an area in which the typeface design profession has failed to make significant progress: the crediting of design and engineering work.

Why should we get better at crediting work? How should we decide which parts of the font development process should be credited? For example, what type and amount of work should be the lower threshold to merit significant, public recognition? What are the current criteria for crediting portions of work in other industries and what can we learn from them? Can we establish a new industry standard, and create common ground? During this lecture we hope to open the discussion on these and other relevant questions.
