Lady Gaga Is The First Woman In 15 Years To Keynote SXSW Music

Lady Gaga SXSW Glasses

Lady Gaga‘s performance and keynote speech at South By Southwest Festival will be historic for several reasons. Not only is Lady Gaga’s performance her first at SXSW, at 27 she’s also the youngest keynote speaker the fest has ever had — and the first woman in 15 years’s.

Mother Monster held the keynote on Friday March 14th.

Glasses in Your Favorite Typeface

Type Glasses Typography

If you love typography and glasses, you’ll find this fun! The Japanese company Type has combined these two and put them on your face.

Just like a typeface gives the content character, glasses give your face character. Choose from the lines Garamond or Helvetica. I’m personally waiting for the Futura in Bold.

Each line has three versions of the spectacles — light, regular, and bold, of course — that delineate the thickness of the frames.
