SCHOOL PWYC - Kevin Lo on Graphic design & Activism

Teachers talking about subjects they like talking about.
Students paying what they can.

Class # 4 Kevin Lo
Topic: Graphic Design And Activism

Kevin Lo will present an cynical/idealist talk about strategies and tactics of graphic design specifically, and communications practices more generally, as tools for community building in opposition to the hegemony of neoliberal capitalism. Sprinkled in will be an obsession for typography and language arts.

Kevin Yuen Kit Lo is a Montreal-based freelance art director and graphic designer. He has previously worked at the agencies Sid Lee, Bluesponge and Cossette, and currently teaches in the Design and Computation Arts department at Concordia University. He runs an independent design and communications consulting practice under the name of LOKi design, specialising in work within the cultural sphere. He publishes the zine Four Minutes to Midnight, exploring the intersections of typography, poetics and politics.
