London College of Communication (LCC) Letterpress technician Alexander Cooper will be joining leading voices within the world of design at an event to be held at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, entitled ‘Graphic Design & Great Expectations’ on Friday 11 May.
The event will centre on how typography and layout affect the understanding of literary text, in an evening of discussion, presentations and workshops.
All those participating collaborated with GraphicDesign& on their first book, Page 1, a comparative typographic experiment that generated 70 designs of the first page of Dickens’ novel Great Expectations.
Alongside Alexander on the night will also be:
Phil Baines, Tony Brook of Spin, Jeremy Coysten of North, Paulus M. Dreibholz of Atelier Dreibholz, Paul Finn of Fitzroy and Finn, Alexander’s Workshop colleague Rose Gridneff, Marcus Leis Allion, Fraser Muggeridge of Fraser Muggeridge studio, Catherine Nippe, Ian Noble, Sam Piyasena (aka Billie Jean) and David Sudlow.
