Wine & Type Pairing

Pairing typefaces is a lot like wine tasting: making educated and inspired choices where the history, personality and unique details of each flavor bring out the best of its complement, creating an experience worth savoring.

Join us for some type “pairing and pouring” in an evening of type pairing and wine tasting. Learn the tips and tricks for pairing type in a design context—classifications, character, superfamilies and more. This palatable event offers a perfect balance of education and networking for designers of all skill levels and is taught by Michael Stinson of TypeEd, hosted by Kluge Interactive and sponsored by Neenah Paper.

All attendees must be 21 or over.
