Swifty Funky Typo-Grafix Q&A w/ Sadar Bahar & Guy Dermosessian at The BBE Store
For our next in-store on April 8th we welcome Ian Swift ‘Swifty’ for a Q&A and signing of his new book ‘Funky Typo-Grafix’ tracing the history of his work as a graphic designer.
The 374-page book reveals aspects of Swift’s design process, showing the evolution of different typefaces and logos he has created, the layouts and mock-ups for various album artworks and magazine spread designs.
In the words of journalist Paul Bradshaw:
“Even if you’ve never heard of Swifty you can bet your life you’ve seen or even owned a piece of his artwork. For two decades this man has cast an innovative and distinctive visual shadow over contemporary urban culture as we know it.”
Join us at the BBE Music store and The Institute of Light from 3pm for the Q&A and book-signing, followed by music and conversation with Sounds Familiar family member Sadar Bahar (Soul in the Hole) and Guy Dermosessian (Kalakuta Soul Records).
