The Joy of Letters


The essential jumping off point for Andrea Tinnes’ design work is a love for the world of letters and joy in typographic design. But in teaching, how do you communicate your own fascination with fonts and typography? How do you inspire passion in your students?

She will introduce herself and her work, and talk about teaching typefaces and typography, using examples from design practice and the classroom.
