This Month's Topic: Graphic Design

Typography (font style and typeface), photography, and illustration are the problem-solving tools of a graphic designer to communicate to the world visually.

Join us for a reading of Annette Simon’s Mocking Birdies, as we explore the process of a graphic designer through shapes, layouts, and letters. We’ll explore the vocabulary to talk about visual communication, whether it’s a wayfinding, a website, packaging or signage. Every grown-up and young designer will leave with their own project(s), whether a newly designed font or a sign to add to your room wall or future portfolio. We’re sure you won’t see signs or websites the same anymore!

This engaging monthly program allows you and your children to spend time together listening to a story then designing a solution to a challenging problem highlighted in the story. We’ll help you explore the building blocks of architecture, design, and city planning - and perhaps inspire you to become designers in your own lives. We share a new story and design challenge on the first Saturday of every month*, so you can come again and again to work together to make something amazing.
