As the quarantine continues in varying degrees of strictness worldwide, online design initiatives still flourish. There are online tours such as ‘Innovative Forms – The Lettering of John Skelton’ at the Lettering Arts Centre in Snape. There’s the Museum of Design Atlanta’s courses, myriad design conversations (like the one I had with Jeremy Leslie of magCulture last week) and fundraising poster initiatives such as 19vs19 (see above), made by designers such as Morag Myerscough (above), Ale Paul and Alan Kitching. The Letterform Archive in San Francisco is promoting many online events, including a virtual tour tomorrow.
On Friday 29 May, 3-5pm BST, you can join ‘magCulture Live Online’, a virtual celebration of magazines in the tradition of previous conferences in London and New York. This event features Gail Bichler (see Reputations in Eye 96), Jaap Biemans, Martha Dillon and Max Siedentopf.
See the Eye events page for more international online events to enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home.
