Modular type systems are the cult classic of the typography and lettering worlds. This lecture hopes to introduce you to an approach to forming letters that you may have never known you wanted.
Join Collections Programming Manager and time-based artist, sair goetz, for a playful dive into modular type. They will explore the strategies of metal modular typefaces, share a survey of contemporary approaches to modularity, and touch on the challenges of modular systems in digital media.
goetz will also show examples of several modular type systems in use as a metaphor for transgender, non-binary gender diversity.
