Join us on Monday, April 1st at Alliant Energy Center as our guest speaker April Villagomez presents How Culture Affects Typography.

Nikki Villagomez looks 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 Madison 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 our area 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: @nikki_vz // #MadisonType Instagram: @nikki_vz // #MadisonType (make sure your profiles are set to Public so that Nikki will see your posts ), or email Nikki at nikkivillagomez@gmail.com.
