Yaaaaas, we're back! Because we need to make 2017 awesome again.
If you’re a web developer, designer or UX-er or just want to learn more about the web, make sure not to miss this meetup. Get ready to learn new things and to meet new people, while enjoying a few drinks.
Come and join us at the lovely Hive in Wan Chai. We're kicking of 2017 with another typography talk, this time by Aceler Chua:
Type is ridiculous (and that's why I love it)
Open MS Word or Illustrator, type the letter “x” in Myriad or Calibri, then zoom in and look at it carefully. Nothing special right? Now tilt your head a little bit. Oh! Why aren’t the strokes aligned? Well, welcome to my world.
“Type is ridiculous” is a talk on how counter intuitive and subjective typography can be at times, yet it can also be extremely structured and logical.
During the talk, we will discuss why these seemingly ridiculous rules and techniques are essential to visual communication.
Aceler Chua grew up in Hong Kong; having spent last seven years in the Philippines, Aceler recently moved back to Hong Kong to continue his design and web development journey. At Grayscale, he uses his front end development and typography chops to establish better visual structures for websites. During off hours, he spends most of his time improving his typography skills while looking for great food.Look back at the event on Meetup.com
