  • Typography in Troubled Times: Making a Case for Historical Research and Critical Design Practice

Ramanathan, Rathna, 2017, Conference or Workshop, Typography in Troubled Times: Making a Case for Historical Research and Critical Design Practice at Beyond Change: Questioning the role of design in times of global transformations, Basel, 8-10 Mar 2018.

Abstract or Description:

Typography has been a discipline and profession of territories. Using examples of three India-based intercultural communication design projects anchored in historical research, this paper demonstrates the potential of typographic practice, as a series of local-global networks, to create meaningful dialogue and change. It notes that we live in a pluralistic world, and for communication design to have real impact we must first visibly evidence our “critical positions” as creative practitioners.
