Talks

 

Since 2013, I have given lectures at museums, universities, conferences, and festivals on my work as a designer and for Art of the Title, as well as topics including title design and motion graphics, book design, and illustration. I've done talks for institutions including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, London College of Communication, Falmouth University, CalArts, and OCAD University, and events such as SXSW, AIGA Design Conference, FITC, MODE Summit, and others. If you'd like to discuss an event, get in touch!
