HereThere 2020 offers a continuous and playful typographic loop generating a sense of endless activity, energy, time and above all, the sense of repetition we experience as we constantly move from here to there.
Often described as a ‘typographic evangelist’, Stephen Banham is a typographer and educator. His typographic explorations, across some 18 books, primarily centre of the cultural life of letterforms. Banham’s design work and writings have appeared in countless international publications and design events, from Barcelona to Beirut and New Zealand to New York. A board member and assessor of the International Society of Typographic Designers, Dr. Banham also lectures in typography in the RMIT School of Design.
This project was curated by Global Art Projects for the Metro Tunnel Creative Program.
