Fake Graphics for Real Movies: Graphic Design in Animated Film
In animated movies, hundreds, sometimes thousands, of pieces of illustrative and typographic design are generated to create a believable and rich world. The graphic designers’ main role is to support and advance the storytelling while adding beauty, humor, texture, and a sense of time and place.
Collectively, designers Laura Meyer, Paul Conrad, and Craig Foster have contributed to just about every Pixar feature film, short, and ancillary project. In ‘Fake Graphics for Real Movies’ they’ll share design work, discuss their process, and show what it takes to bring a film world to life through graphics.
Letterform Lectures are a public aspect of the Type West postgraduate program. The series is co-presented by the San Francisco Public Library, where events are free and open to all. Registration is encouraged, but it is not required to attend.
The free talk will be held on Zoom on Tuesday, Jun 30, 2020, at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PDT.
