Luc(as) de Groot

Bis zum äußersten: LucasFonts

TYPO Berlin 2015 Character | Friday, 22 May | 11:00 am | Hall | German

Luc(as) de Groot will present fine type between ugly extremes. He will talk about the un-doability of 32 masters. He will give a life proof of his daily fights with the grid. He will explain details of optical mathematics, providing insights into how design of letterforms – and shapes in general – works. His talk will be about very logical and very illogical phenomena (“soon” to be published in his book). Luc(as) will touch on his Anisotropic Topology-Dependant Interpolation Theory, plus there will be fine practical examples: referring to his first type families, and how they flourish. How to deal with the challenges of designing fonts in foreign language systems? How about its cultural implications? What about practicability? Follow Luc(as) from his early adventures with TheSans back in 1995 to fine font expeditions today. Be assured, he’ll keep you from falling asleep.
