Sara’s talk will focus on researching, producing, and publishing graphic design and how those converging practices influence each other. Sara will share insights into her career and also her forthcoming book "Off the Grid: Histories of Belgian Graphic Design". The book offers a collaborative panorama of Belgian graphic design history from multiple perspectives, with essays on type design, colonisation and labour relations, among other subjects.
