Latin America’s Typography Masters
with Felipe Taborda

In this talk, Felipe Taborda will present the web series of articles he has been writing for Experimenta magazine called, “Maestros del Diseño en América Latina”. The series he writes is a closer look at the work of a few professionals of graphic design from Latin America, generally unknown and misunderstood, and often not recognized internationally — and even in their own countries. This talk will focus on five masters of typography: Álvaro Sotillo (Venezuela), Félix Beltrán (Mexico/Cuba), Fernando Pimenta (Brazil), Jaime de Albarracín (Peru), and Rubén Fontana (Argentina).
