Upcoming Speaking Events
The conference schedule is just getting started for 2015, and we’re ready to get out there and talk about type. Here’s where you’ll find Typekit folks speaking this month and next.
Tickets are available for both of these events at the time of posting.
16-18 February | InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, Georgia (USA)
Tim Brown will debut his new talk, “Typesetting Body Text Like a Pirate Jedi with a DeLorean.”
Oh, you haven’t already left to register after reading that title? In this talk, Tim will explore the challenges of typesetting body text for the web. It’s a complicated, expensive process, and it contradicts tenets of typography that are widely considered fundamental to good design. But doing it well fortifies your brand, lends authenticity to what you say, and clarifies your messages. And body text can act as an anchor, making other design decisions easier. In this new session, Tim Brown welcomes you to hone productive typesetting practices — with many specific tips, as well as a solid overview of the scope, dependencies, and effects of our typographic decisions.
5-6 March | Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (Netherlands)
Robothon is a two-day boutique conference on UFO, RoboFab type, technology, and typography. The conference program is still being finalized (watch their website for updates!), but the speaking lineup includes Typekit team members Miguel Sousa and Frank Grießhammer.
