TYPO London 2012 Social
About the Speaker


Kirsty Carter & Emma Thomas (A Practice For Everyday Life)

Entering a visual dialogue with the spectator: the works of London-based A Practice for Everyday Life draw international attention. Recent projects include the exhibition design and publication of “Bauhaus: Art as Life“ at Barbican Art Gallery and a new visual identity for Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam. Working on everything from brand identity, print to signage, wayfinding and exhibition design, Kirsty Carter and Emma Thomas enjoy investigating, exploring, collecting and experimenting to arrive at outcomes that surprise, delight and engage on many levels.

Currently they are working on the graphic identity of a new cross-disciplinary arts space in Hong Kong and the design of a major new retrospective publication for the artist Linder. At TYPO London Kirsty and Emma will show us how their communication skills create settings that one feels inescapably drawn into. (Photo: Carol Sachs)

Translating Personal to Public

TYPO London 2012, October 20, 2012, 3:00 pm (Logan Hall)

A Practice for Everyday Life produces work that is with, out of, and for people, and is borne out of collaborative working relationships and extensive research. For their TYPO talk, Kirsty and Emma will discuss what ‘social’ means in the context of their practice and will present a selection of APFEL projects, exploring the stories that both informed and emerged out of their designs, and detailing how they identify and distil visual and conceptual references to create work that is both subtle and direct.
