Typographic Landscape Around Chinese factories presented by Ivy Yixue Li.


This presentation will take the audience through a journey of Ivy's past field studies in Chinese factories,. She will present her typographic research of the disordered but lively visual landscape surrounding Chinese factory workers. The presentation will be a tribute to labor, a celebration of (anti-)design, and an attempt to justify misused typography.
