Join AIGA LA and Nikki Villagomez for a look into how culture affects typography and the decision-making process in everyday life. She will use typographic pictures taken throughout her travels to highlight the photos she receives from Los Angeles in a side by side exploration discussing the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices.
Get the book! Nikki will have copies of her book Culture+Typography: How Culture Affects Typography for sale at the event for $20.
