Stick it to the Man! Political Pin-Making Workshop

Stick it to the Man! Political Pin-Making Workshop
with Ava Rosen

Type West Public Workshop
Workshop at Letterform Archive
Sat, Oct 29, 2022
11:00am–2:00pm PT

Design your own pinback button to spread a message that is important to you.

What are you protesting, supporting, or bringing awareness to at this tumultuous time? Political pins have been signal-boosting social movements throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. In this workshop, we will seal our messages into bold, typographical pins that we can wear to spark awareness or conversation this election season and beyond.

Diversity and Equity are important to all of us at Letterform Archive, and we are committed to increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups within the type and design communities.

We are offering one BIPOC/Equity scholarship seat in this workshop.
