04:17 // Font ADCTs Movie Night

Come join ADCT at our first ever movie night on the Guthrie Green! Sit back and relax on the lawn as we screen Font Men & Helvetica.

Font Men gives a peek behind the curtain into the world of Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, who have created fonts used by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to the President of the United States. Tracking the history of their personal trajectories, sharing the forces that brought them together and giving an exclusive look at the successful empire they built together.

Gary Hustwit’s Helvetica looks at the proliferation of the namesake typeface as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica has been shown at over 200 film festivals, museums, design conferences, and cinemas worldwide. | |

01:16 // Jen Bilik

Jen Bilik is the founder, owner, and overall head honcho of Knock Knock.

Jen grew up handy in Berkeley, California, quilting with her mother and learning carpentry with her father. After high school, she attended the University of Michigan, where she majored in English literature and film studies, plying her secret arts-and-crafts hobbies on the side.

After college, Jen decamped to New York City and labored variously as a film development intern, apprentice film editor, architectural draftsperson, tutor, babysitter, and newspaper proofreader before accepting an actual salaried job in publishing. Happenstance landed Jen in coffee-table books, exciting mini-productions unto themselves with graphic designers, illustration sources, four-color printing, authors, and copyediting. Read more

There will be a $4 cover charge (artists donating a block to be auctioned will get in free).
