Digital open lecture on typography

Beckmans artistic research and open lecture, visual communication

Welcome to a lecture on typography with Walid Bouchouchi, founder of the French-Algerian design agency Akakir Studio,and who created an alphabet based on phonetics, Fono-Type.

About typography as bridge builder between different graphic expressions

Fono-Type is a visual representation of the spoken language in North Africa and highlights the close link between typography and language. In a digital lecture, Walid Bouchouchi now talks about the work with the alphabet and about typography that he describes as follows:

"I'm hoping to build bridges between different systems of graphic expression, it develops a multilingual and multi scriptural visual language, composed from several languages and alphabets, in which different cultures coexist."
