Tangible Type: 3D Printing for Graphic Design – Taekyeom Lee
Technology and design have been in a symbiotic relationship. Typography has always evolved with technologies and creative processes as new technologies, processes, tools, and materials fused new ideas and creative design solutions.
Taekyeom Lee, an assistant professor of graphic design, will describe his tangible type project, which explores various conventional and unconventional materials in 3D printing to explore both challenges and alternative solutions for the new realm of typography. 3D-printed tangible type amplifies not only visual but also physical interactions. The tangible type provides engaging tactile experiences that are more intuitive, expressive, engaging and memorable.
Lee’s talk is part of the Friday Research Seminar Series sponsored by the Institute for Design Research and Outreach. Join the virtual session at 12:10 p.m. Friday, Feb. 11, via Zoom with meeting ID 955 2880 2175, passcode 602353.
