Now that Typecon2004 has come to an end, I’m sure we all have a slew of photos — both of the events and of, well, you know, sock puppets, drunken escapades and that sort of thing. :ahem: Post your image collection URLs here!
What I really need to ﬁnd out is if James used the sock puppet to position the coaster, and if so was it the male or female sock puppet from the ﬁlm festival. BTW, am I ever glad the plunger didn’t make it back to me that night. hhp
whew, what a week. I’m exhausted, I’ll post my photos tomorrow
Great pix, Zara!
Zara, good shots. But where’s Dyanna? hhp
Wow, it’s so great to see Typophiles all happy and hanging out. Reminds me that all of this is more than just words on the web. Perhaps in the future I’ll be able to join you. ‘Til then, cheers!
Here are a few more, at my dad’s .mac account:
I’ve also posted these not-so-dirty pictures that Zara supplied — a bit too racy for her own album.
Gee whiz. These are going to seem really boring now. :-)
oh no! i’ve been laughing so hard my tummy hurts. great pics. i never did ﬁnd the blue bunny that night.
I have a lot — mostly of drunken typographers frolicking. Up tomorrow. Until then, maybe Zara will share some of her masterpieces?
Ouch. Now I oﬃcially regret being knocked out. And you’re saying there’s a secret Level-3 beyond that stuﬀ… Finally, I have a mission in life. — Mark, what’s with all those photos with fonts in them? hhp
Mark, what’s with all those photos with fonts in them? Well, it was a type conference. I had to take some pictures of type. :-)
Yay, the picz in the Black Album kick some major booty, JLT! These remind me of our fans after one of our gigs. Zara, is it possible to add captions puh-leaze. I don’t know half the people on your pictures.
Yves, once I get the time I will make a prettier page with captions, I just haven’t had the time yet. Soon, I promise.
I just checked your collection, Mark, and I didn’t ﬁnd them boring at all. In fact it’s one of the more interesting series. Just a disconcerting lack of drunk boob-grabbing, that’s all.
THX Zara, you rule (especially on the dance-ﬂoor I noticed). Tres R’n’R my dear.
I’m printing these out to convince my wife to come to NY2005!
Well, my wife just viewed the infamous Black Album and now she won’t let me go to NYC2005!
> to convince my wife ? Wow — lucky guy… hhp
Zara Evens took all of those — not me. I was having too good of a time to document those particular moments. Just kidding!
We are still trying to decide what to do with the plunger
Well, technically I didn’t take them because I was in all of them
Hrant said (well, he meant): But where’s Dyana? Yes, where am I? The ﬁrst license of Materot goes to the lucky person who gives me a *good* shot of my half-split. I am notoriously un-photogenic, so, goofy shots will only make me sad and less likely to dance at the next TypeCon, which is about the same time that I will have learned a newer, “much more awesome” move.
Dyana, if I could print the image seared in my brain I would, although I don’t think they make photographic paper that’s strong enough anyway. hhp
Yves — when she saw the Black Album she INSISTED she accompany me. She said she trusted me but she’d get really jealous if a drunk woman stuck her tongue in my ear. If she’d been there she’d be one of the drunken cohorts of Zara, believe me. The stories I could tell…
More photos from TypeCon! Awesome socks, Dyana
Good grief. I slept 4 hours the night before. I wasn’t thinking clearly when I put on those socks.
Andy, those shots are jaw-dropping. Some are nearly magical. What’s most impressive is that I didn’t even notice you had a camera. Oh, and even without the half-split I think you deserve the Materot. hhp
Wow, looks like one hell of a party!
Mine are here.
> Wow, looks like one hell of a party! ATypI gatherings suddenly seem really boring…
I love this secret ‘we-were-there-talk.’ It reminds that I should have been there… Looking forward to the pics! A thank you goes out to my trusty Type Con Conference Strike Teamers! Thanks for your help.
Thanks again Hrant, I really appreciate it. Like I said over in the typographica thread, if anyone wants to reproduce them just give me credit and ask me for a high-res. The number one tip is to practice to be good enough with your camera to be able to use it in the dark while drunk. TypeCon: Argyle socks and sweaty men.
Dyana, I don’t know if there’s a “much, more, awesome” move than the half-split though I think there’s probably something “much, less, painful looking”
Yves wrote: “ATypI gatherings suddenly seem really boring..” Well, hoping ATypI will be in stay in Europe for 2005, Yves… maybe being on home soil will make a diﬀerence? ;)
I think we should have a TypeCon Photo Contest with diﬀerent categories and put up a gallery on Typophile. There are some amazing/fun/beautiful shots in there. Whaddayaguysthink? There I go all competitive again…
Gah, now I’m really regretting my lack of money. Looks like I missed a hell of a party!
Great shots, Andy.
man. i have a spread i’m doing fr my student publication, and it seems like i might have been the only one around still in school. it’ll look good.. i promise. hi i’m davy, i’m sure no one saw me. .heh. if i knew that party was so banging, i might have showed up and not gone back to work.
MY STAFF HAD BETTER GET WORKING ON THOSE TRIP REPORTS, OR THEYE’RE ALL GOING STRAIGHT TO THE FLEET CENTER! YOU HEAR! ;~)
Thanks for the pics everyone. My camera ended up staying in my suitcase the entire time. I have to echo the sentiment of meeting (and re-meeting) all of you. It is nice to hear the voice with the post(s). There were so many people this year, craziness quantiﬁed, but it was good. If nothing else, next year we need to make a more concerted eﬀort to have a typophile lunch break.
Mr. Berlow, that is going down in the Best Quotes of Typophile. =) For the record though, Ms. Weissman was really helpful, productive and I’m sure she learned a lot and networked even more. Curious how nobody seems to have photographed her then. =)

Mr. Berlow, great meeting you here! It’s been too long (Berlin, Fuse 95 I think) Welcome to Typophile!
Great pictures, Andy!
Yet another gallery here: http://www.munchfonts.com/Misc/TypeCon2004/index.html As usual, fuzzy and tipsy are the hallmarks of typographic photography — at least by my hand. It was a great week. Lots of talk and info, fun, visuals, sonics; all that good stuﬀ. Hope you all can make it to NY next year!
My photos are ﬁnally up: http://homepage.mac.com/tamkeith Not many photos of the conference itself this year. A lot of them turned out blurry and dark. Still haven’t got the hang of this new camera yet… Andy, your photos are great. Most people with digital cameras tend to take lots of crappy shots and pay virtually no attention to composition, etc. But the few shots you took are all very carefully framed and captured the perfect moments. Great stuﬀ!
The Typotect pictures: http://www.typotect.com/typecon/ Another wonderful convention. I look forward to meeting even more of you in NYC next summer. The world feels smaller each year.
