FontShop is pleased to be a sponsor of TypeCon2012. David and I (Meghan) from our San Francisco office will be there, so find us and say hello. As our resident type expert, David is excited about all the programs, but here’s his three “not to miss” for TypeCon newbies (and returnees):
- Cyrus Highsmith’s talk on Friday morning. He’ll be discussing the concepts at work in great typography through focusing on the negative space. Word is Inside Paragraphs, Cyrus’s new book on the subject, will be available there too.
- Saturday night’s Type Quiz separates the casually type-obsessed from the committed with questions like ‘Put the following five faces in order of their release.’
- Sit down with John Downer, Akira Kobayashi and Roger Black Sunday afternoon while they review your latest design at the Type Crit. Stick around to see other type designers’ work and make some friends.
Tomorrow (July 7) is the last day of early bird registration…save some cash to splurge on the new designs you learn about at the conference!
