March 24th: Typography: The Line That Roars in the Jungle of Multi-Dimensional Communication

WILLIAM M. BEVINGTON

Wednesday | March 24th | 6pm to 8pm

Sponsored by the New York chapter of the American Printing History Association in cooperation with the Type Directors Club

Mr. “B” will briefly present his extraordinarily useful theory (with some historical insight) concerning the eight principal visualization models. He will then discuss why typographic treatment remains such a powerful part of the Information Mapping and Visualization spectrum. Even though pure typographic application is the least spatial of visualization opportunities it packs a powerful punch in the last mile of informativeness. He will argue that serif typefaces are more linearly readable, but less spatially readable, than sans serif typefaces.

William Bevington is an Associate Professor of Information Mapping at Parsons The New School for Design. Formerly, he served as the Executive Director of PIIM: The Parsons Institute for Information Mapping.
