Pablo Delcan:
Make It

For me, design is about transformation. I learned this growing up in a house that was also used as a ceramic workshop; you are given a chunk of mud and what you do with it, out of an infinite amount of possibilities, is up to you. This talk is about finding your voice through that process of turning something inside out. Whether you are designing book covers, posters, animations, flower vases, or kites – each piece is a process of transformation that invites you to be absurd, bad, messy, and, most importantly, fun. Designing can be an awfully tedious job if you don’t find a way of letting the process guide the way.

This talk is scheduled to take place , 2022, at New York time (/UTC), as part of the main Typographics conference. Conference registration is required to attend in person.
