Reflections on TYPO London

Earlier this week we made the exciting announcement that TYPO, Europe’s most successful design conference, will be coming to San Francisco. With the week winding down, two of our SF staffers reflect on the TYPO London conference held last weekend.

Says First Officer, Michael Pieracci:

TYPO London felt just like past TYPO Berlin conferences. The speakers had great stories to tell, compelling experiences and ideas, and their presentations were impeccably designed. I loved seeing attendees and speakers mingle outside the auditorium during breaks. My favorite presentation was from Kutlu Çanlıoğlu on how the BBC accommodates a huge number of language on their many sites. And the most exciting moment was receiving an autograph from King Bansah.

Reflections of Meghan Arnold, Communications Manager:

This was my first TYPO and I’m so excited that we’ll get to experience this in the states next year. I’ve never been so creatively inspired in an auditorium before, by such a diverse group of speakers. The mix of students and design notaries created a most amazing vibe. I loved seeing the inspiring women who presented and their use of color and storytelling in design. Of particular note to me were Nat Hunter, Marina Willer and Morag Myerscough. And let’s not forget the killer sketch notes of Eva Lotta-Lamm!

You can find more wrap-up of TYPO London on their blog.

TYPO is coming home!

We are delighted to announce that TYPO London, the event based on the hugely successful TYPO Berlin, will return to its roots in London, the city where it all began with FUSE 1994. Europe’s most successful annual design conference was founded in 1996 from the impetus created by the first two FUSE Conferences in London 1994 and Berlin 1995. The Berlin FUSE conference was the springboard that created the demand for TYPO. It is fitting that the founder of FUSE, legendary designer and typographer Neville Brody, “Britain’s first pop-star typographer” (International Herald Tribune), will be one of the speakers at TYPO London 2011.

In October FUSE will return to its roots – as TYPO London 2011. Some 1,000 typographers, designers and communication professionals from all over the world will have the opportunity to follow an eclectic and inspiring mix of talks by the most influential thinkers of these disciplines.  Among the speakers who have confirmed their attendance for TYPO London 2011 are: Neville Brody, Michael Bierut, König Bansah, Jonathan Ellery, Jeff Faulkner, Tim Fendley, Dale Herigstad, Nat Hunter, Gary Hustwit, Michael B Johnson, Chip Kidd, Morag Myerscough, Pamela Mead, Karin von Ompteda, Joachim Sauter, Marina Willer, Laurence Weiner, Julian Zimmermann and many more.

The theme of this years TYPO London is »Places«. From information and urban planning to social networks, online communities and animated worlds, places shape our social behaviour. Design and the creative process is often the unifying factor linking people, places and things together.
