They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But is that even the case anymore? As the way we view content changes and as the desire to receive information on mobile devices grows, our experiences are increasingly stripped down to only the necessary elements. And while content remains king, how we visualize it has become even more important.
Sullivan and the Type Directors Club of New York are proud to present: After the Jump. A one-day symposium that brings together some of today’s most inspiring industry leaders to discuss how technology affects human behavior and how those effects impact design and typography.
