Our pals in DC are offering up the ultimate party: a night of design and music featuring Baltimore duo Post Typography. The award-winning designers will present their ‘Greatest Misses,’ then deliver their ‘greatest hits’ at the first-class music venue, The Fillmore Silver Spring. Check it out this Thursday at 7 pm!
The design studio’s principals, Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen, will give a behind-the-scenes peek at the design process, illustrated with projects that fell short, missed the mark, or were blown off-target by the fickle winds of client taste.
Originally conceived as an avant-garde anti-design movement, Post Typography specializes in graphic design, conceptual typography, and custom lettering/illustration with additional forays into art, apparel, music, curatorial work, design theory, and vandalism.
They’ll turn up the volume after the lecture for two sets of music featuring Strals and Willen: first instrumental duo Peals, then fiery punk band Pure Junk.
The lecture and concert will cost $14 and is an all-ages show. Registration for this event closes on January 16th at noon. Tickets will be sold day of the event, at the door, for $16 with an additional $1 service charge.
