Want to know what widows, rivers, and pig bristles have to do with typography? Listen to Carolina de Bartolo (@carodebartolo) explain why Typography Matters in the video below! Designers + Geeks is an engaging meetup that covers everything from beautiful architecture to mobile development. At an event hosted at Yelp in November, Carolina covered topics ranging from the history of typography to practical advice on choosing fonts for your project.
Designers + Geeks is just one of the many community events that we host in our spacious 10th floor lounge. But fair warning: once you attend one event here, with our view of MOMA, two kegs, drinks, and snacks, you may end up wanting to attend all our events!
