Video archive: January selection – Hidden gems

Those of you who have been to a TYPO Berlin conference before 2010 know, that one of the highlights after each conference was — when the DVD with selected TYPO talks came home by postal services worldwide. Since 2011 we don’t burn DVDs anymore; all TYPO talks (in Berlin, London, San Fran) that got recorded can be found in our TYPOtalks video archive. By now we have over 300 design talks online and each year we add around 30 new videos. 300×45 minutes = 225 hours of video material. Because this is a lot of time you’d need to watch through this, we now start to bring you selected content. Every month (until we get tired in doing so) we will select 5 talks under different topics. Hope you like it. Off we go – with the hidden gems. TYPO speakers, that are not so well-known but truly suprized us.

Interview mit Jürgen Siebert, dem Programmdirektor der TYPO Konferenzen

Ich besuche Jürgen Siebert, um mit ihm über die TYPO Berlin 2017 mit dem Thema »wanderlust« zu sprechen. Mal sehen, was er mir verraten kann. Welche Sprecher werden erwartet? Ob und wie wird das Konzept der Bühne »Beyond Design« nächstes Jahr fortgeführt? Wie geht es weiter mit den TYPO Labs? Aber auch Anekdoten aus bald 22 Jahren TYPO Berlin möchte ich ihm entlocken.

TYPO Labs: The DTL Story – 40 Years and Counting (Update)

Ikarus is the name of a digital outline format invented in the early 70s by Peter Karow. It was one of the earliest developments to describe complex character outlines digitally. A number of foundries started digitizing their type libraries using the Ikarus technology. Doing so required a software package for producing Ikarus fonts. Those software tools are still at the core of what today are known as DTL/URW++ font tools.

TYPO Labs: DTL / URW++ session

During the DTL/URW++ session at the TYPO Labs conference on Wednesday 11 May 2016, Lukas Schneider gave an interesting talk on the LS Cadencer and the related LS Cadenculator (batch) fitting/auto-spacing extensions he has written in Python for Glyphs and RoboFont.
