On June 9th at 6.30 pm SPD welcomes Pierre Di Sciullo for the sixth DesignTalks event. French designer, Di Sciullo is recognized for the works on experimental typography and for the interest in the integration of type into physical spaces. Among his recent works, the identity project of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. The lecture is open to the general public and will begin with an introduction by Silvia Sfligiotti.

Pierre Di Sciullo works with various media and platforms: books, posters, movies and exhibitions. He conducts researches in the areas of graphic and typographic design and develops projects for cultural and institutional clients. In 1983, he started publishing “Qui? Résiste”, an experimental publication that he writes and designs. Starting from his research on the relationship between speech and writing, he designed several fonts: the Minimum, the Quantange, the Basnoda, the Sintétik, the Gararond and the Amanar, digital font for the Touareg writing system. He also collaborates with set-designers and architects, developing his interest in graphic design applied in three-dimentional spaces. His works for the public spaces are meant to involve the audience, inviting them to read and discover a new form of urban poetry.

DesignTalks is the international lecture programme promoted by Scuola Politecnica di Design SPD to explore the most interesting research trends in design, architecture, graphic and multimedia. The integration of different media, between design and technologies, research and professional practice will be central to the meetings that will continue until July 2010.

The next lecture will be given by Patricia Urquiola on Wednesday, June 30th at 18.30.
