Jeremy Tankard will launch his latest typeface and discuss contemporary type design with Catherine Dixon at a talk hosted by St Bride Library in London next month.
Jeremy Tankard in conversation with Catherine Dixon takes place at Regent’s University on May 14. Dixon and Tankard studied together at Central Saint Martin’s where Dixon, a designer, now teaches, and will discuss issues affecting typography, Tankard’s personal experiences of type design and “the survivial of an individual practice in an increasingly derivative design world”. After their debate, the audience will be invited to ask questions.
Tankard set up his own studio in 1997 and his typefaces include Corbel, Bliss, The Shire Types and Enigma. His latest design, Pembroke, is described as a British geometric typeface and will be released immediately after the talk.
The event takes place at 7.30pm at Tuke Hall, Regent’s Park NW1 4NS and tickets cost £15, but concessions are available for students and friends of St Bride. Half of all proceeds will be donated to the Wynkyn de Worde Charitable Trust, which funds printing related bursaries and seminars.
