Letter.2 videos published
Three presentations from the Letter.2 conference in Buenos Aires are now available on the ATypI site. Contributions from Peter Bilak, John Hudson, and Gerry Leonidas & Fiona Ross were captured on video and are the first of many to be published over the coming weeks and months.
Peter Bilak discusses the ‘Expanding possibilities of typography’, covering language, modern dance, rhythms, and... typography.
John Hudson presents ‘Athena Ruby: when shape has meaning’, about the work of his foundry, Tyro Typeworks, in developing a typeface to meet the needs of scholars who catalogue and study Byzantine seals and coins.
Gerry Leonidas & Fiona Ross, from Reading University's Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, talk about their approach to research-based design at the Department's well-known Masters degree course in typeface design, and approach summarised as ‘Think it through!’.
All presentations are in English; introductions are in Spanish.
