Drink in Design: Letterform Archive

Grab a beverage, any beverage, and get comfortable because MODA is bringing design to you!

On August 20, we’ll be speaking with Letterform Archive in San Francisco. The Letterform Archive was founded by Rob Saunders, a collector of the letter arts for over 40 years, as a place to share his private collection with the public.

The Archive opened to visitors in February 2015 and now offers hands-on access to a curated collection of over 60,000 items related to lettering, typography, calligraphy, and graphic design, spanning thousands of years of history.

 

About Drink in Design

Atlanta’s most creative people (and some from beyond the 404) will invite you (virtually) into their home, studio, or maker space. They’ll tell you about their work, their career trajectory, and what they’re thinking about now as our world takes a new form.

Drink in Design is held on Zoom, so you’ll be able to interact and engage with each designer personally. Just register and the meeting link will be delivered straight to your inbox.

 

About Letterform Archive

So far, the Archive has welcomed over 10,000 visitors from 30 countries, including students, practitioners, and letterform admirers from every creative background. Some come with specific research ideas in mind, while others are simply looking for inspiration. Invariably, thanks to the breadth and accessibility of the collection, they stumble on something unexpected. Serendipity is key to the Archive experience.

In addition to hosting visits and public events, the Archive serves a global community through social media, state-of-the-art photography, and publications. We offer courses and workshops in type design, calligraphy, and typography. We also curate exhibitions of our holdings, organize lectures by visiting artists and designers, and host salons and receptions to showcase collections or celebrate out-of-town guests.

The Archive is located on Ramaytush Ohlone land in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.
