HORT is a Berlin based graphic design studio made up of uniquely selected, creative and spirited people. Throughout its existence Hort has been a constant pioneer in re-inventing the visual language of contemporary graphic design. HORTʼs ongoing experimental enthusiasm inspires budding young designers and has become an influential source amongst contemporaries.
One of the highlights of the second TYPO London conference will be Paula Scher. A Pentagram partner since 1991, Scher’s landmark identity for The Public Theater ‘fused high and low into a wholly new symbology for cultural institutions, and her recent architectural collaborations have re-imagined the urban landscape as a dynamic environment of dimensional graphic design’ (AIGA).
TYPO London facilitator Erik Spiekermann is as passionate about cycling as he is about typography. To recover from the two days of conference turmoil, Erik volunteered to guide a typographic bike tour around London and to show his favorite font spots to TYPO attendants.
