Design à Trois

Design à Trois is a three night event exploring rock poster design, book cover design and type design. We’ll kick things off with acclaimed rock poster design documentary, “Died Young, Stayed Pretty.,” by filmmaker, Eileen Yaghoobian. Next up will be “You SHOULD Judge a Book by Its Cover” – an insightful and amusing presentation on 50+ of the weirdest book cover designs – by NYC designer/comedian, Patrick Borelli. And, last but certainly not least, we will conclude with the national premiere of Punchcut’s newest installment of the Typophile Film Fest, a collection of typographic film shorts.
