Adobe Got this one Right: Professor Danny Pelavin Speaks at Adobe Max Conference

Our own resident designer, typographer, illustrator, and of course, professor, Danny Pelavin is just back from  Adobe Max 2013 Conference on Creativity in SoCal. With his usual mix of smart, cunning commentary, coupled with a sublime visual history, a nod to his mentors, and self-depricating humor that belies the brilliance of his work, he delivered his lecture, Fonts? We Don’t Need No Stinking Fonts! It is all at once humorous, informative and inspiring, just like Danny. Adobe described it this way: Take a tour of typographic design that crosses the boundaries between lettering and illustration with master designer Daniel Pelavin. Rarely using standard fonts, Pelavin prefers to create his own, giving his work an individuality made possible in large part by the powerful tools in Adobe Illustrator.
We are so proud that year after year, Danny donates his time and brilliance to design our catalog for Visual Thesis.
