The impact of collaboration on the type industry
When Thu 15 Sep 1630
Where Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw ASP
What Track A
Who Bianca Berning

In my talk, I will look at how encouraging open dialogue among peers can not only enhance the industry, but also help our community and its individuals grow. Based on three or four recent examples of collaboration, I will outline the benefits and difficulties of (interdisciplinary) collaboration. In particular, I will highlight the impact of teamwork on the professional development of individuals, especially newcomers, trainees and students in the type industry.

The questions I aim to answer are:
- How can the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experience promote creativity and innovation in type design and font technology?
- How do we engage entry-level professionals? How can passing on knowledge, skills, abilities help reshape our community? How can a collaborative environment be achieved in which peers feel confident to raise questions?
- How, what, and why do we learn from each other?
