Ed Fella worked as a commercial graphic designer for thirty years in Detroit, and is famed for his contribution to contemporary typography. Post Typography, consisting of Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen, was founded in 2001 as “an avant garde anti-design movement” specializing in “graphic design, conceptual typography, and custom lettering/illustration with additional forays into art, apparel, music, curatorial work, design theory, and vandalism.” Hear Ed Fella and Post Typography discuss the history of graphic design, the impetus for their works, their differences in style and approach, and, eventually, their similarities. This event was held at ADC Gallery in conjunction with UnderConsideration.
