Giorgio Marani – Typographic Retrospective
8th November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Giorgio Marani’s first solo exhibition focuses on the importance of
typography within graphic design, and is being held at Burley Fisher
Books in Haggerston at 7pm on Wednesday 8th November.
The exhibition showcases the work of Giorgio Marani, a Milanese
graphic designer who started experimenting with typography in
2005 at Scuola Grafica Salesiana. In Milan, he was taught traditional
methods of graphic design, learning the rigours of technical handdrawing
alongside computer-based design. In 2014 joined the (BA)
Graphic and Media Design at London College of Communication,
where he used the workshop facilities and teaching, to explore the
role and meaning of typography and visual systems further.
These two differing but complementary design philosophies are
reflected in his work: an exploration of type and colour. Traditional,
meticulous yet playful.
A selection of posters experimenting with typography, colour and
grid systems is going to be displayed at Burley Fisher Books, for one night only!
