Webfont Wednesday: Places for Webfonts

In case you’ve missed the exciting news, TYPO returns home to London this fall. Of course, what would a premier design conference be without a first-rate website employing a solid webfont? TYPO London’s leverages FF Unit Web throughout to communicate information about the event. Want to learn more? Information on TYPO London is below.

TYPO is coming home!

We are delighted to announce that TYPO London, the event based on the hugely successful TYPO Berlin, will return to its roots in London, the city where it all began with FUSE 1994. Europe’s most successful annual design conference was founded in 1996 from the impetus created by the first two FUSE Conferences in London 1994 and Berlin 1995. The Berlin FUSE conference was the springboard that created the demand for TYPO. It is fitting that the founder of FUSE, legendary designer and typographer Neville Brody, “Britain’s first pop-star typographer” (International Herald Tribune), will be one of the speakers at TYPO London 2011.

In October FUSE will return to its roots – as TYPO London 2011. Some 1,000 typographers, designers and communication professionals from all over the world will have the opportunity to follow an eclectic and inspiring mix of talks by the most influential thinkers of these disciplines.  Among the speakers who have confirmed their attendance for TYPO London 2011 are: Neville Brody, Michael Bierut, König Bansah, Jonathan Ellery, Jeff Faulkner, Tim Fendley, Dale Herigstad, Nat Hunter, Gary Hustwit, Michael B Johnson, Chip Kidd, Morag Myerscough, Pamela Mead, Karin von Ompteda, Joachim Sauter, Marina Willer, Laurence Weiner, Julian Zimmermann and many more.

The theme of this years TYPO London is »Places«. From information and urban planning to social networks, online communities and animated worlds, places shape our social behaviour. Design and the creative process is often the unifying factor linking people, places and things together.
