Culture and Typography in Rhode Island
Join AIGA Rhode Island and Nikki Villagomez for a look into how culture affects typography and decision-making processes in everyday life. In her presentation, Nikki will use pictures taken throughout her travels to discuss the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices based on location.
This is where YOU come in! Help shape the event’s content by sending in photos of your favorite Rhode Island typography. Nikki will use the photos you send in to create her presentation! For the next few weeks, we challenge you to really look at the everyday typography that makes Rhode Island unique.
The types of pictures we’d like to see submitted are graffiti, manhole covers, hand lettering and local signs. Submit your photos now!
You can submit photos by:
Twitter: @aiga_ri @nikki_vz // #RhodeIslandType
*Please submit all photos by Friday, May 1 to ensure your photo will be part of the presentation.

The lecture will deal with issues of type design, offset printing and web design and development. April 23, Tuesday 6:30pm RISD Design Center, Room 212 30 North Main Street, Providence, RI
