Q: What should people expect to learn at the upcoming Ad Club event at Titletown Brewery?
CHANK: People should expect a better understanding of where fonts come from and why new fonts are still being made all the time. They also learn a bit about broader typography, and why different fonts are chosen based upon how they will be used. And hear how an individual creative person working from home can create designs that are useful and compelling to large clients and audiences all over the world.
Q: Do you have a favorite letter and why?
CHANK: My favorite letter changes from time to time, but lately my favorite has been the capital A. I like the diagonals and how they makes a nice little roof for itself, with two feet planted firmly on the ground. I like all the vowels best, mostly; but the A is my fave as of today.
Q: If you could give one piece of advice to designers who are just graduating and entering the job market, what would it be?
CHANK: My advice to emerging designers is to find one unique, niche, kind of skill, in an area that you enjoy and focus on that. Nurture your learning on a subject that naturally interests you. Become an expert in some specific design field, so you have something that sets you apart from all the other designers out there.
