ATypI

Monotype Imaging is pleased to be a platinum sponsor of ATypI Hong Kong 2012, the annual conference presented by ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale), Oct. 10–14. Several of our resident type experts from around the world will be sharing their knowledge and skills. Come by and join us as we take a look at Web fonts, Japanese typographic history, new automotive type trends and so much more.

Going to ATypI in Hong Kong this year? Eben Sorkin and I have booked 7 nights at US$260/night total for a twin room at a deluxe 5 star hotel with a gym, pool, etc. Following my remit to encourage sharing and be absurdly cheap, I'm hoping to share the room and split the cost further. If you're interested, email us - dave@understandingfonts.com / eben@eyebytes.com

Letter.2, the 2nd type design competition organized by the Association Typographique Internationale, is open for submissions until August 15.

- 3 days main conference: $170 or

I claim to have a world record in type design in speed.

When House Industries guys went about their Font Sprint in Vancouver, I promised I would trump their attempt of producing a working font in under 4 hours. They failed miserabily; they had upper and lower case letters, and most of the numerals.

I promised that if ATypI ever came to Helsinki, I would make a whole font in that time.

ATypI did come to Helsinki, so I had to put my money where my mouth was, and since I was one of the organizers, I could. This is the result:


It is ugly as hell, but it's a working Open Type font with 122 kerning pairs.

ATypI announced its second type design competition, Letter.2. Submissions open on April 4, 2011.
