The Type Directors Club is celebrating 65 years of typographic excellence and will have Ji Lee, a Parsons Communication Design Grad, as part of one of the guest speakers on Wednesday, October 6th. The topic of her speech is “Revolving and Evolving: Typographic experiments of a cultural orphan.”

A 3-D alphabet as a mind-bending puzzle. A typeface designed for reading and writing in four directions. An alphabet mash-up between the Roman Alphabet and Korean Hangul, Google logo transformed as circles. These are some of the typographic experiments by Ji Lee, who was born in Korea, raised in Brazil and lives in New York.

Ji will share his experience of growing up in different cultures, the challenges of communicating in several languages, and how this has shaped his interest in communication and playing with type and alternate alphabets.
