Was wir auf der #typo17 gelernt haben

Schon zwei Wochen ohne TYPO Berlin … Was bleibt? Ein vollgeschriebenes Notizbuch, die ein oder andere Visitenkarte, jede Menge neue Impulse – und viele kleine, überraschende Fakten, die wir hier noch einmal Revue passieren lassen.

Gar nicht so einfach – ein Gespräch über Kreativität, Intention, Prozess und Perfektion

Auf der diesjährigen Typo machen wir getreu dem Motto „Wanderlust“ einen überraschenden Fund: den Umweg. Das unperfekte Moment in den Erfolgsgeschichten der Vortragenden lässt uns aufhorchen. Wir bitten Aoi Yamaguchi, Chris Campe, Dominic Wilcox, Erik Kessels und Peter Breuer auf die Bühne – eine fiktive Gesprächscollage.

Typo Berlin 2017 "wanderlust"

The théatron as a medium

Yes, if you want to use a single word you can say: illustrator; but probably this definition doesn’t really fit the whole theatrical body of work by Henning Wagenbreth. His grotesque and funny style which goes back and forth between real life to imaginary world.

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.

David Jonathan Ross: The ups and downs of vertical typography

Local liquor stores can be the start of great things. For David Jonathan Ross they were the start of an in-depth exploration into the realm of vertical letterforms. His analysis of shop signage in the urban landscape, as well as the technical and aesthetic challenges when vertically drawing letters and setting type resulted in the typeface “Bungee”.

Prarthana Johnson & Gerrit Kaiser: All Hail the Committee

Design by committee is a term sometimes (ahem, always) negatively used in the creative industries. But now, the trend and move from classical agencies to in-house designers has lessened the stigma attached to working “in-house” and for “team client side”. Prarthana Johnson and Gerrit Kaiser from Soundcloud, tag team to talk about what it means to be designers who are not afraid of designing by committee.
