Through typography, there is a unique opportunity to express rhythm, culture, local aesthetics, traditions, tastes, humor, quirks, place, and people—in any language. It is a powerful tool of empowerment and can be an outlet for the expression of opinions, emotions, and worldviews. Ty Drake’s design work has a strong connection to music, including his design projects for such luminaries as Ringo Starr, and he has been personally influenced throughout his career by legendary jazz great Miles Davis. He will present on the expressive and collaborative intersection between typography and music.
