Nikki Villagomez: Culture + Typography

Join AIGA Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh 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 submit are graffiti, manhole covers, hand letter and local signs. Submit your photos now!

You can submit photos by Twitter @AIGAPittsburgh / @nikki_vz Instagram at @AIGAPittsburgh /@nikk_vz  with the hashtag #PittsburghType. Make sure your profiles are set to Public so that Nikki will see your posts), or email Nikki at nikkivillagomez@gmail.com 

Please submit all photos by Friday, April 13 to ensure your photo will be a part of the presentation.

Get the book! Nikki will have copies of her book: Culture + Typography: How Culture Affects Typography for sale at the event for $25
