The Future Sketches group welcomes you to the world of computational typography!

In this lunch lecture series, MIT Media Lab is hosting six designers/studios whose work explore the intersection of typography, language and computation and whose work speaks to what design may look like in the future.  

This week's feature is Just Van Rossum, a pioneering designer/programmer, who can be blamed for popularizing the Python programming language in font development circles.

Speakers are redefining the boundaries of traditional typography, unleashing the potential of computation to explore what new forms of communication arise when type is approached as a dynamic medium, how AI can inform new type design tools, and how computation can help democratize design.  We'll hear about what they are working on, what they are excited about and what visions they have for the future of typography.

This event series happens every week until Friday, October 13 on Zoom.
