TYPO Speaker


Laurence Penney

Principal, LORP.ORG (Bristol, UK)

Laurence Penney is a consultant in font technology based in Bristol, UK. Focussed on dynamic type tech, he specialized in TrueType: coding rasterizers, hinting fonts, and training others how to hint fonts. He later took on the challenge of creating MyFonts, the open platform selling fonts from all foundries, part of the team that made it market leader by a wide margin. The recent revival of colour and variable fonts gives Laurence hope that the type world has not forgotten the best ideas from a generation ago and he looks forward to helping these technologies take off. Laurence’s Axis-Praxis website lets anyone play with variable fonts and, by means of Axis-Praxis as well as his talks & workshops, he hopes others will understand what the excitement is all about.
