ABOUT







Anthony Cahalan

Anthony Cahalan has broad-ranging national and international experience in graphic design, marketing, public relations and design education. He is currently Deputy Head of the School of Design and Architecture and Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Canberra. He studied visual communication at Sydney College of the Arts, has a Master of Design from the University of Technology Sydney and completed his PhD in typography at Curtin University of Technology in Perth. Cahalan's doctoral thesis was entitled Type, trends and fashion: A study of the late 20th century proliferation of typefaces. It was published by Mark Batty in 2008. The book blurb: New York : Mark Batty Publisher, 2008, quarto, cloth in dust jacket. 348 pp. First Edition. Changes in technology and stylistic developments in the design, use and reproduction of typeface designs were exponential in the last two decades of the twentieth century. This was due in no small part to the availability of the desktop computer and associated software. Anthony Cahalan investigates this late twentieth century proliferation of Western typefaces by analyzing and interpreting the phenomenon from the perspective of those studied: graphic designers and similar experienced users of typefaces, rather than the general population of computer users. This book documents the way these design and typography professionals saw the type design industry from the inside to provide fascinating "snapshots in time" of typeface design during this exciting period.Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin.
