Typography in the Digital Landscape — LDF 2014

With London Design Festival 2014 quickly approaching, I thought I’d share an events that I plan on going to. Most importantly the Typography in the Digital Landscape seminar.

This is the most important typography talk in my opinion, and is hosted by Method and Dalton Maag.

Method are a creative agency based in London, New York and San Francisco. The best way to explain what they are about is to borrow a quote from their website; “We are a collaborative design studio. We approach design from the needs of the customer, putting them at the heart of the problems we solve, and the opportunities we create.”. In regards to what they design, they create for the digital world. Producing well considered UI, UX, branding and a whole other breath of design solutions for their clients; Nokia and Google being two of many clients.
