HMCT Dialogue Series

VOX POP LONDON

Presented by the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography, the VOX POP LONDON DIALOGUE SERIES examines how the voices of typography and design work to influence perception, comprehension and opinion, ultimately affecting our world. Join us as we discuss how public opinion, movements, news, politics, language and more are visualised.

Three evening discussions conceived and introduced by

Prof. Gloria Kondrup, executive director, HMCT
