Dr Manny Ling is a senior lecturer in Design at the University of Sunderland in the UK. He is a graphic designer and calligrapher.
Ling will be discussing his design and calligraphy work and to share with you his insight into his practice. Ling will use his everyday observations as a basis for his talk—anecdotes and stories that would reveal his unique perspective on life and how he loves to find inspirations from the mundane and see them as objects of beauty.
Ling was trained as a graphic designer, typographer and type designer. He is passionate about calligraphy and has led the International Research Centre for Calligraphy (IRCC) at Sunderland for the past 18 years. His work is widely published and has exhibited around the world. His most recent exhibitions were held in Osaka and Kurashiki in Japan.
