TYPO Berlin highlights

May 22nd, 2013

Erik Spiekermann print workshopOur feet have just about touched the ground since the wonderful whirlwind that was TYPO Berlin 2013 last week. So, we thought wed share some snippets and snapshots.

Taking place over three days and reaching it's eighteenth year running, this year’s TYPO Berlin was one of the biggest yet with design superstars such as Jessica Walsh, Neville Brody, Albert-Jan Pool and Ken Garland.

This year’s conference also played host to the first ever Type Review that took place on Friday 17 May. Members of our official TypeBoard, Erik Spiekermann, Stephen Coles, Erik van Blokland, Andreas Frohloff, Jürgen Siebert and Ivo Gabrowitsch were let loose on stage to critique, commend and appraise typefaces in public.

The quality of the speakers was fantastic and highlights included Simon Manchipp and Neville Brody. There was a number of workshops to take part in, including Erik Spiekermanns print workshop and the Calligraphy and Lettering Workshop by our Head of Type, Andreas Frohloff.
