LETTERFORM LIVE: FASHION
FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek was kindly invited to speak at Grafik's hugely popular Letterform Live: Fashion event – a fun and informative evening at Protein Studios, filled with typography found in all things fashion…
___ Letterform Live speakers in order of appearance: Camille Walala, Tomi Vollauschek, Sean Murphy and Dal Chodha.
___ Each of the speakers zoomed in on a single letterform, exploring both its visual form as well as its context and history. Speakers were encouraged to share their letter's little-known secrets and reveal their personal relationship with the letter they’ve chosen.
