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.

Rian Hughes: Device Fonts

Rian Hughes is a man of many sides. Comic book artist of 2000AD fame, accomplished illustrator, graphic designer, type designer, “prolific rummager” and most recently author of a book entitled “Cult-ure: Ideas Can Be Dangerous”. Hughes’ talk today at TYPO focused on the later, offering a thought-provoking 45 minutes on the concept of culture, and how (for better or worse) it shapes our perception of the world.

Matthew Butterick: Rebuilding the Typographic Society

Matthew Butterick’s philosophy is about taking risks and making things happen.

Graduated from Harvard, being a typographer, a writer (‘Typography for Lawyers’) and a lawyer, he clearly and accurately raised the importance of the written word, within the graphic design industry. He asks us two main questions: what makes typography valuable and how can we rebuild the typographic society?

Vaughan Oliver

Vaughan Oliver: Visceral Pleasures

Vaughan Oliver, designer and art director spoke yesterday at TYPO London of a career spanning 30 years in 30 minutes. Oliver is perhaps best known for (but certainly not limited to) his record cover work with various photographers under the names 23 Envelope and v23, producing iconic artwork for artists such as Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, Lush, UVS, Pixies, The Breeders, Bush, TV on the Radio, Bon Iver, Zomby and more recently David Lynch.

Kate Moross

Kate Moross: Business Grrrl

Kate Moross isn’t ashamed to be a child of the MySpace generation. After all, the 26-year-old designer owes much of her success and many of her clients to aptly using the early social networking site. As a “post post punk punk,” the internet helped define Moross’ business focus of “Art + Music + Grrrl.”
