To coincide with a presentation in the Fox Reading Room of work from award-winning typographer and book designer Gerald Cinamon, David Pearson discusses text design at Penguin.
David Pearson will be discussing the company's inception in 1935, through the arrival and impact of Jan Tschichold in 1947, the handing over of the reigns to Hans Schmoller in 1949 and finally, Gerald Cinamon and his significant contribution to the company from the early sixties through to 1986.
David studied at Central St Martins in London (1999–2002) before taking a job at Penguin Books as text designer and later, cover designer. He left to establish his own studio – Type as Image – in 2007. He has won numerous awards for book design and has been listed as one of Britain’s Top 50 Designers by the Guardian, nominated for the Design Museum’s Designer of the Year Award and is a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI).
Due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately Gerald Cinamon is no longer able to participate in this event as previously advertised.
