City Series – ‘The City: in Graphic Detail’

25 May, 2017 @ 5:15 pm - 6:45 pm

Free

City Series is a new public lecture series in Leicester that delivers free events relating to a wide range of urban topics, such as architecture, history and geography. This is a collaboration between Leicester City Council, De Montfort University, University of Leicester, and Loughborough University, with speakers from those institutions and from the wider community. 

The latest lecture will be delivered by Dr Robert Harland. The talk will draw from Robert’s recently published book ‘Graphic Design in Urban Environments’, to explain how graphic objects such as typefaces, advertisements, street signs and sports pitches contribute to the way urban places work. Brian Lisowy, Place Marketing Project Manager for Tourism, Culture and Investment at Leicester City Council, will also give a short presentation on the new ‘Legible Leicester’ project.
