The Ideal Design Superhero
Communication channels are expanding, messages are not conventional anymore, audiences are smarter and faster, the world is diverse, and life should be fun! Emojis are a key part of our day-to-day and their evolution should go through personalisation, transformation and adaptation. Pedro will explore accessibility and inclusivity through emojis while sharing some of his experiments on pushing the limits of the format.
Pedro Arilla is a designer with a passion for words, interested in how typography plays a storytelling role in the intersection of culture, technology and sociology. He helps brands and humans worldwide to encapsulate typographically their voices at Arillatype.Studio® — previously he worked as a Creative Director at Monotype and Fontsmith.
