Ever wonder how type really works and what it says about our culture?

If so, join AIGA Chicago to hear designer, author and blogger—Nikki Villagomez, as she reveals how culture affects typography and decision-making processes in everyday life. Leveraging audience contributed images, Nikki combines these with pictures taken throughout her travels to discuss the comparisons (and contrasts) in type choices based on specific locations and cultures.

Nikki will be giving her 30th AIGA talk here in Chicago, using images taken by YOU to reveal the typographical soul of our windy city. Join in the fun by capturing your favorite examples of type using #ChiTownType on Instagram, or emailing your photos directly to Nikki at nikkivillagomez@gmail.com with #ChiTownType in the subject line.

Note: To access Braintree, use the main elevator bank in the middle of the building and head to the 8th floor. Check-in will be in the hall around the corner from the Braintree sign.
