A while ago, I posted on Facebook that I wanted to host a little event where typographically-minded folks could get together and have a fun day where we could play with letterforms and experiment with type both formally and informally. After mulling this over for a bit, I decided to go ahead and start a formal lecture and event series called BetterLetter to explore these ideas.

In collaboration with Artalking, BetterLetter is going to have its first event, a lecture by Andy Cruz of the famed type foundry and manufacturer of design objects, House Industries, on September 17 in Tokyo. It is going to be a fun, intimate, one-night event where Andy talks about his work and recent collaborations with the Estate of Charles and Ray Eames.

More info will be posted tomorrow about the kickoff.
