Ampersand Institute for Words & Images Presents: A Talk with Legendary Designer Alan Peckolick

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been canceled and will be rescheduled.

Alan Peckolick, leader of a graphic design movement in the 1960s and '70s known as expressive typography and a master of designing letters in order to wholly integrate them—and sometimes to let them take the lead—in a given design, will speak at the University of Baltimore on Thursday, March 6 at 6 p.m. Presented by UB's Ampersand Institute for Words & Images, Peckolick's talk will take place in the M. Scot Kaufman Auditorium in the William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center (home of the Merrick School of Business), 11 W. Mt. Royal Ave. The talk is free and open to the public.

Peckolick's 2013 book, Teaching Type to Talk, compiles the best of his internationally-recognized work, alongside his anecdotes about how his eye-popping posters, logos and other graphic pieces came together. Peckolick will sign copies of the book following his presentation.
