The theme for the first Letterform Live evening event (created In partnership with Monotype) is letterforms from posters. These exclusive events feature five speakers, with plenty of time for questions and drinks afterwards, plus a chance to win a bag crammed full of Monotype goodies.

Freda Sack (Foundry Types) 

Every graphic designer’s dream format — the poster is perennially inspiring and provides some great ‘classics’ from the graphic design cannon. Type, and its interplay with imagery, is the essential ingredient of great poster design. Speakers will draw upon on a single letter used in a poster and tell the story behind its design and context. This is a rich and diverse topic to delve into — from early advertising posters, to wartime propaganda; classic movie posters, to design for transport: these are just a few sources of inspiration for our speakers on the theme of ‘Posters’.
