When Letterform Archive launched the Online Archive on April 7, they had no idea the venture would break part of the internet.
One month, two server crashes, and over 200,000 hits later, the free resource continues to grow into one of the most comprehensive online collections of typographic history, and a powerful tool for students and professional designers.
With the Online Archive reaching people all over the world, we want to join our global community to celebrate this special milestone and provide a backstage tour of highlights from the nearly 1,500 objects and 9,000 hi-fi images housed online. Attendees joining us for the evening will also have the opportunity to ask our curatorial team (Kate Long, Rob Saunders, and Stephen Coles) questions about the site, or anything Archive related.
Although the Archive offices in San Francisco are temporarily closed, we’ll toast online with designers everywhere, including the Type Directors Club (TDC) community, using the Zoom video conferencing platform. Join us!For more information and to register.
