Emoji, Type Tools, Woodtype & More with Typekit at TypeCon

This year TypeCon celebrates 20 years and the Adobe Typekit team is so there for this party in Portland, Oregon!

Here’s a breakdown of where to find us during the week:

Throughout the Conference

As part of our partnership with the Hamilton Woodtype & Printing Museum we will be supporting an exhibit of 10-12 vintage posters from the museum’s collection. The posters are rare circus and entertainment advertisements made from hand-carved wood blocks that date from the 1930s to the 1950s. They were acquired in 2016 from the Enquirer Printing Company in Cincinnati Ohio. The folks from Hamilton will also be bringing along some original blocks from the collection and printing them during conference breaks for attendees to take home as souvenirs!

Friday, August 3

Around lunchtime, our own Steve Ross will join Wayne Hoang from the Adobe Illustrator and InDesign team to give attendees a sneak peek at upcoming new type tool features.

Friday evening sees the return of the SOTA Spacebar and we’re happy to support this “a game, wrapped in a conversation, finished with a selfie” once again. Complete the challenge for fun prizes!

Saturday, August 4

Don’t stay in 🛏️, grab some ☕ and 🍩, and join us as Paul Hunt kicks off Saturday’s program with “Language, Culture, Emoji” at 9:30 a.m. 😍

Of course, most of our team will be attending all the sessions and events throughout the week, so look for us and say hello.
