CONFERENCE:

Based on the success of the Granshan non-Latin typeface design competition held each year since 2008, the Granshan 2013 non-Latin conference will travel to Southeast Asia for its second incarnation:
http://www.granshan.com/

Organized by Typographische Gesellschaft München (tgm) and its partners*, the core of the event is comprised of four days at the end of July featuring workshops, presentations, exhibitions and a symposium. With presenters and attendees from all corners of the world, Granshan is the only conference focused on non-Latin typefaces. As such, it has itself become a focal point of this rapidly growing and maturing field.

Anyone have an idea what font is used to create the Sistas logo on this page?
I'm hoping it wasn't custom made, but haven't had any luck finding anything like it elsewhere...

Show off your new faces at TypeCon!

Submissions are now being accepted for inclusion in TypeGallery2012, the annual unjuried showcase of new typeface design presented by the Society of Typographic Aficionados.

Typefaces that have been created, published, or significantly updated between June 2011 and July 2012 will be accepted. Both traditional type specimens and designs showcasing typefaces in use will be accepted. Please review the submission guidelines for complete details.

The submission deadline is July 27th, 2012.

The Society of Typographic Aficionados will once again be holding its annual silent auction during TypeCon2012 — raising funds for their various educational and community activities. We are looking for any typographic trinkets, knickknacks, bibelots, ornaments, baubles, objet d’art, collector’s items, rarities, curiosities, oddities, kickshaws, or tchotchkes that you’re ready to part with. Donating them to the auction and share your exceptional taste with other type aficionados and collectors. It’s also a perfect way to clear space on your shelves for new collectables. Above all, you’re helping support a great cause.

Could anyone help me with the name of this font?

Tension is frequently described as a positive in design, with designers balancing opposing constraints and visual ideas in often ‘perfect tension’. Design work balances a whole series of tensions: analogue–digital; male–female; Twitter–Facebook; art–design; East–West; old–young; interns–employees; global–local; micro–macro; educated–‘feral’; in-house–independent; degree course–short course/apprenticeship; designer–client.

If you have any typographic trinkets, knickknacks, bibelots, ornaments, baubles, objet d’art, collector’s items, rarities, curiosities, oddities, kickshaws, or tchotchkes that you’re willing to part with … donate them to this year’s silent auction.

The two-days symposium will take place this year at the University of Arts in Poznań (Poland) on 18–19 June 2011. The theme of our conferences is type and typography. That is not going to change any time soon. This year we aim to accentuate the social aspect of the symposium. In the end, the word symposium refers to drinking party or convivial discussions held in ancient Greece. The two days will include exhibitions, an evening full of short type presentations (aka TypeShorts), party, and of course a day full of excellent lectures.

In case you hadn't heard about it, I thought I'd give a mention to Ampersand, a one-day conference specifically focussing on web typography.

It will be held in the famous Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, in the seaside town of Brighton, UK on Friday 17th June 2011.

Ampersand is an affordable one-day event for knowledgable web designers & type enthusiasts. The idea is to represent the overlapping worlds of type design, web design and software, and the event should be a fun day of nitty gritty details from experts in font design & development, typesetting & font usage, browser implementations, and with glimpses of a bright typographic future.

The line up will be:

* Vincent Connare
* Jon Tan (web designer & cofounder of Fontdeck)
* Jonathan Hoefler
* David Berlow

The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is thrilled to be bringing TypeCon2011: Surge to New Orleans, Louisiana — July 5th - 10th, 2011 — and is now accepting programming proposals for its thirteenth annual conference.

We are currently reviewing proposals for contemporary and historical presentations and panel discussions, focused hands-on workshops in both the digital and non-digital realms, and a variety of programming for the Type & Design Education Forum and other special events.

Please visit the TypeCon site for program details and submission criteria.

Would you please help me to identify ALL the fonts used to create this post card. I've been asked to help with the design for the website and I'd like to use the same fonts if possible.

The annual conference "Tage der Typografie" are being held for the 12th time this year from the 5th to 7th November in Düsseldorf, Germany. The organiser Peter Reichard invited Veronika this year to give a weekend workshop as part of the events.

Are you up for the challenge?
