“The more uninteresting the letter, the more useful it is to the typographer.” This provocative statement is from Piet Zwart, the Dutch pioneer of modern typography who was influenced by Russian Constructivism and De Stijl, and was simultaneously a designer, photographer, and industrial designer. Lucille Tenazas, Filipino-American educator and National Design Award winner, has consistently applied this idea to her work. Her lecture will reflect on what makes a thoughtful and critical designer, and how a disciplined and constrained process can help a designer invent their own typographic approach.
