Sarah Boris will talk us through her journey, from studying type design in Paris to establishing herself as a designer specialised in branding and editorial design and collaborating with people in the arts and culture fields.

Her work has been acquired by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and exhibited at the Design Museum in London.
