Map designer Bruce Daniel will speak at 4 p.m., April 19, in the atrium of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the campus of Western Carolina University.
The talk, “Sensing Place: New Ways to Look at Maps,” is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception from 5-7 p.m.
Daniel is the executive vice president and director of Cartifact Labs, a cartographic design firm based in Los Angeles. An advocate of high-quality design, Daniel has practiced his craft through informational graphics and maps.
Daniel offers an excellent perspective on the topic because he has been involved in the design of maps from their existence almost exclusively on paper to their more contemporary digital presence, said Matt Liddle, professor of print and book arts in the WCU School of Art and Design.
