Symposium Description:

Why do you need type? How do we need it? What can we do to it? KCAI graphic designers will be exploring the possibilities with you. Together, we will discover the basics of typography through expressive and experimental letters. This is an opportunity to view what you see and what you read in a new way. At this symposium you will discover what typography is, how you can use it, and how much fun it can be. Who doesn't want to be an explorer?
