See you at TypeCon
TypeCon 2017: Counter starts on Thursday and the Typekit team is ready to see many of you in Boston this week.
We’re pleased to be a Banner sponsor of the conference this year. Several folks from our team will be attending all the sessions and events throughout the week, so look for us and say hello. We’ll be out in full force at the events below:
Friday, August 25
The SOTA Spacebar returns this year! The TypeCon folks describe it as “a game, wrapped in a conversation, finished with a selfie,” and our own Ariadne Remoundakis is on the list of type celebs to meet. Everyone who completes the challenges will get a Typekit Swag Bag and one lucky winner will join the Typekit team for drinks and conversation on Saturday before the Type Quiz.
On Snapchat? Make sure to use the Spacebar geofilter to tag those 24 hour memories.
After the party, Briar Levit screens her documentary, Graphic Means (another project we’re happy to support).

Masataka Hattori presents “Fundamentals of Japanese Metrics Editing” at 11:50 a.m., an excellent opportunity for those wanting to learn more about Japanese font (and font-design tool) development.
