Field Trip: Typewalk

Saturday, September 6, 2014, 10am to 12pm

The Atlanta Type Walk uses letters found in the downtown built environment to tell a story. Coupled with historic research on letterforms, typefaces and Atlanta’s development, the walk travels in time from 1897 to present. Participants see, hear and experience Atlanta from a fresh perspective as they view building names, street signs, wayfinding signs, plaques, abandoned signs and graffiti.

Our guide will be AIGA member Sue Youngblood, Graphic & Web Design Faculty at The Art Institute of Atlanta and admitted type aficionado. Ms. Youngblood has a BFA in Visual Communication from Auburn University and a MFA in Advertising Design from Syracuse University. She has been involved with graphics in the built environment for over 25 years including Turner Field and the Atlanta Centennial Olympics. Her family shares a long Atlanta heritage that dates back before the Civil War.

The walk starts promptly at 10am. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start, rain or shine.  Meet on the mezzanine level of the Five Points MARTA station. The walk ends at the Carnegie Education Pavilion in Hardy Ivy Park at Baker and Peachtree Streets.

Tickets are $5 for MODA Members / $10 for non-Members. Click here to purchase.
