Wrap up: Des Signes & Indra Kupferschmid talks

Des Signes, Indra Kupferschmid

The first #tptalks16 session was a great success. It’s so wonderful seeing so many people united by their love for type!

Franklin Desclouds shared an impressive portfolio of recent projects. From Des Signes identity of Château de Versailles to Nuit Blanche event. Always working beautifully with colors, transparency and typography. It’s easy to see how he and Elise have grown Des Signes so successfully over the last 15 years. Beautiful work.

Indra’s talk continued in a similar vein to the discussions in-class. She shared some fascinating thoughts on typeface classification, and selecting/combining multiple typefaces with confidence. The audience was captivated by her concepts. Great news! The night was filmed for your viewing pleasure.
