Extra editie! Extra editie!

Probably you have seen the »Zeitung« newspaper around the halls of TYPO Berlin today. What looks like a regular edition, actually is a special publication by the type experts of Underware. The Dutch type foundry decided to print their newest web font in a newspaper.

The way out from the diacritical misery

The basic means of communication across the whole of Europe has not changed over the last few decades. We consider the letter shapes of the Latin alphabet a done deal, with numerous descriptions, textbooks and manuals describing its construction being in existence. Unfortunately these publication only concern themselves with a few basic language areas; a comprehensive source which also includes extended languages is still missing.

The working mind and drawing hand of Oliver Jeffers

It takes a lot to hold the attention of a Millennial, and yet Oliver Jeffers captivated an entire hall for a full 52 minutes. We laughed, we cried (mainly from laughing more), and quickly realised that there’s a lot more to Oliver Jeffers’ pencil than first meets the paper.

TYPO Labs: Business opportunities and challenges in bringing variable OpenType fonts to the market

The panel led by Adam Twardoch, featuring Matthew Rechs from Adobe Typekit, David Berlow of The Font Bureau, Ivo Gabrowitsch for Monotype and Alexandra Korolkova from Paratype set out to find some solutions for variable font issues that can’t be solved by sliders or dials – how will they affect the market for fonts? Despite differing opinions and viewpoints, the one thing all panelists seemed to agree on is that nothing is set in stone. Yet.
