As an entrepreneur or startup, finding your voice is vital for you to communicate your vision with clarity, and for it to be memorable. Doing this well can make the difference between success and simply fizzling into obscurity, no matter how amazing your idea is.
Sarah shares her learning as an experienced graphic designer and entrepreneur who has empowered businesses to find their voices and to project their visions successfully. She combines this with knowledge gained from five years of research into perception and influence of the printed word, along with judging design awards for D&AD and Penguin.
Learn how to define your own voice, from the fonts you choose to the the way you use them across the platforms from stationary to social media.
Projecting your own unique visual voice that reflects the personality and values of your vision will feel authentic, inspire confidence and better connect with your audience.
How do you find your voice? Why does consistency matter? What can you do yourself, and when is it time to bring in the professionals?
This is an engaging and fun session with lots of activities, games and props that will broaden your typographic vocabulary. The session will empower you to project your voice with confidence and to communicate your vision with clarity in today’s noisy information age.
This is a brief history of human communication and no prior knowledge of (or interest in) fonts is necessary. Storytelling devices that proved so popular on the Type Safari tours have been developed for this format, combined with tastings, games and challenges.
