DC Design Happenings

There are a couple of design-related events happening in DC next week that are definitely worth checking out:

On Monday, Februrary 23, Matthew Carter is speaking at the Corcoran about his work as a type designer. With over 50 years in the business, Carter is internationally recognized. Two of his most famous typefaces are the Microsoft screen fonts Verdana and Georgia (DBK is set in Georgia, just to note), which are used by millions of people. It should be an inspiring and interesting lecture. I believe this event is sold out, but a waiting list will start at 6:30pm the night of the event. More information about Matthew Carter and the event can be found on the Corcoran's website.

The next great design lecture is happening later the same week. On Thursday, February 26, AIGA DC, in partnership with AIGA Baltimore, presents Patrick Coyne, editor and designer of Communication Arts magazine. Coyne will speak about his experience at CA, the history and philosophy of the magazine, it’s renowned competitions, and their process for choosing featured creative professionals to profile. He will also showcase a selection of award-winning design and advertising projects produced on limited budgets and discuss the future of creativity in the post-information age. There are still tickets left for this event, get yours now|DBK
