Educating otherwise: THE STANDARDS WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ARE NOT UNIVERSAL

THE STANDARDS WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ARE NOT UNIVERSAL – Evening lecture with Parasto Backman in the framework of the continued education program “Educating Otherwise”.

We will take a closer look at the hidden characters within graphic design and typography – and highlight what is considered to be standard, neutral and universal. As well as what falls outside of these frames.
