This crunchy, slurpy, brainy type talk explores how designers can engage the human body in the experience of reading and communication.  Ocularcentrism is the dominance of vision over all other senses in modern society.  The empire of the eye exludes people who touch, hear, or smell, but do not see.  Inclusive design practices range from eyes-free interaction design and audio description to typographies and topographies of touch.  Opening up typography to our other senses not only includes more people, but reveals new possibliities for visual design as well.  Ellen Lupton co-curated The Senses: Design Beyond Vision at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in 2018.

Ellen Lupton is a writer, curator, educator, and designer.  She is Senior Curator of contemporary Design at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City.  She has authored numerous books including: Thinking with Type, Graphic Design Thinking, Graphic Design: The New Basics, Type On Screen, and Design Is Storytelling.
