“Playing the Long Game” with Kyle Letendre

September 27, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We live in an era of quick fixes and instant gratification, but there’s still value in doing things the long way. In fact, the further we reach into the digital world, the more we seem to crave things that were made by hand. Kyle has learned the importance of patience and due diligence, even in an era where everyone and everything is at our fingertips, and Kyle’s talk will walk through the journey from in-house designer to freelancer, and all the mistakes made along the way.

Bio: (photos attached) Kyle Letendre is a freelance lettering artist and illustrator based in Chicago, Illinois. Since 2011 he’s worked with clients like Instagram, Airbnb, McDonald’s and even a few drag queens, specializing in bold, expressive lettering that’s full of personality. Outside office hours, Kyle teaches Expressive Type at the Chicago Portfolio School, and holds an honorary degree from the Tyra Banks School of Modeling.
