Dispatches from TypeCon

David and Meghan from FontShop San Francisco are in Milwaukee this weekend to attend TypeCon2012: Milwaukee Shift. FontShop is pleased to sponsor this event (look for our Taste Guide inside attendee bags).

The keynote kicks off tonight, after a group of attendees returns from the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. David is helping with the Education Forum today and will report on that later. Meghan suggests you build a time machine and go back to Wednesday evening for The Heads of State special presentation, which beautifully (and hilariously) highlighted the relationship between illustration and typography using the Bob Ross model of design principles. End goal: end up at the happy cabin of creative satisfaction.

A former Milwaukee resident, Meghan was thrilled to see local young talent highlighted at the Just Our Type exhibit at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
