Street signage, design and lived behaviour

Four design and environment experts discuss the use of typography and signage in an urban context, looking especially at how signage is used to influence, modify and comment on human behaviours.

Specific to Sydney, but also exploring universal issues of signage, the city and human behaviour, this event explores graphic design beyond mere aesthetics and brands, instead focussing on the urban environment, and the issues that go with it. The talk considers how the designer plays more meaningfully into these city spaces and how we respond.

This conversation is inspired by an Object Space exhibition project at Australian Design Centre, featuring work by Stephen Goddard, creative director of Project Two and Associate Lecturer in Graphic Design at UNSW Art and Design, that explores urban issues, privilege, positivity, graphic design and typographic hierarchies.

Panel speakers:

Annabel Stevens Executive Producer – Digital at Collider

Carlo Giannasca Partner, Frost*collective/Head, Urbanite

Isabelle Aileen Toland Director, Aileen Sage Architects

Stephen Goddard Creative Director, Project Two
