Larry Buchanan: Mapping, Typography, and Storytelling

Larry Buchanan: Mapping, Typography and Storytelling from Type Directors Club on Vimeo.

TDC Salon: May 18, 2017. “Mapping, Typography, and Storytelling” with Larry Buchanan

Larry Buchanan, a graphic editor for The New York Times, explains how aesthetics inform cartographers and designers to blend graphics and text in a way that illuminates the most pressing issues of the day — election results, red/blue states, melting icecaps, violence in Chicago neighborhoods. Larry works at The New York Times where he reports, writes and makes maps, charts, diagrams, and other weird things that don’t necessarily fall into one of those categories. He is also an instructor at the School of Visual Arts. This salon was featured as part of 2017 NYCxDesign.
