TYPO Labs Font Engineers' Conference Debuts Next Month in Berlin

Looking for something amazing to do before ATypI Warsaw? Join us in Berlin next month at TYPO Labs! Just launched by the folks behind TYPO Berlin, TYPO Labs is a new conference dedicated to the technical aspects of type design.

TYPO Labs Font Engineers' Conference Debuts Next Month in Berlin

The first annual TYPO Labs trade meeting, debuting with workshops, Q&A sessions, and discussion, will be held May 10–11, 2016, in the creative hub FORUM Factory in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. Immediately following this exciting new font engineers’ conference, TYPO Berlin will take over the House of World Cultures for three days dedicated to exploring new currents in design culture.

TYPO Labs will bring together type developers as well as foundries and industry leaders at the cutting edge of font engineering. The two-day event offers three tracks of lectures, classrooms, and workshops. Highlights include:

• development classrooms, run by Fontlab, Glyphs, DTL FontMaster, and Robofont
• language workshops on Cyrillic, Georgian, and Arabic type
• panel discussions on GX Variation, Hinting, and Universal Type Engine
• lectures on WOFF 2.0, Scripting, new plugins, and the "Internet of Things"
• chill area, bar, food truck, café, and much more
