FYI, airfare LA to/from New Orleans around TypeCon-time just took a precipitous price drop! I just got my round-trip ticket for $289 (including everything). That price is valid departing before the Friday (including mid-morning or evening flights on Thursday) and returning after the Sunday (including an early-morning flight on Monday, arriving mid-morning into LA). It's Delta airlines.
See you there!
wow, i didn't know there were many other type nerds such as myself in my area. I'm from Glendale, I used to go to Art Center in Pasadena. I'm a hand-letterer and obsessed with all things type.
to hrant: BAREV!
Barev, eh? :-) I can tell you live in Glendale, AKA "New Armenia"... and it should be no surprise that I live there too.
ArtCenter is cool. I used to teach a type design night class there.
I'm moving to San Diego in August and would very much be interested in meeting up with like minded designers/type n3rds once I get settled!
