Shivani Parasnis:
Photographic Typographic Memory

Memories are a funny thing. They quietly exist in compartments of your brain and spring out to surprise you on a gloomy Thursday afternoon.

They remind you of a different time, make you cry & help you heal, but they also form an unrestrained playground for a lot of us to create work as artists.

“Typographic Memory” is an account of many such curated memories from Shivani’s life, that are all tied together through the common thread of, you guessed it right, typography. Her talk will explore the idea of type serving as a means of finding joy in designing everyday things, reconnecting with your roots, building a community, and most importantly, having fun. Through a series of personal and commercial imagery, Shivani will present her diary of thoughts + designs (good & bad, new and old) to share how typography has shaped her practice as a designer through the years.

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.
