The two-day conference will feature a diverse array of local and international, creative and inspiring speakers across multiple industries in the Novellus Theater at YBCA, including:

Michael Bierut — Pentagram

Hi type lovers,

The Graphic Artists Guild will be hosting an evening with Michael Doret (type designer, lettering artist, and print-designer extraordinaire) on Saturday night, October 23rd. We would love to have some hardcore typophiles attend if you're available.

Details available at http://losangeles.gag.org
and here's the event page on Facebook.

Anybody think they can come?

Hope to see you there,
Josh Korwin


Can anybody help me out if they know some typography competitions for professionals (or young professionals to be precise). I came across the TDC site, but that competition is closed. Any others?
