No Typo with Tipo

We are very happy to bring Tipos Latinos 2012, the Fifth Biennial Show of Latin American Typography for the first time to the Czech Republic this April. The objectives were clear; expose the local Czech design scene to Latin American typography and nurture the exchange of knowledge and experience. As part of this endeavor, we also invited several czech designers to contribute their recent type work, that hasn't been exposed to the general public before. The exhibition will open on the 4th April at the Gallery Vernon in Prague 7. At opening night a special token will be the screening of the film "Making Faces" by Richard Kegler.

TDC Award

Tom Grace's Iskra has been selected by the jury of the renowned TDC competition to receive the Certificate of Excellence in Typeface Design, and will be included in the Annual of the Type Directors Club, Typography 34. Iskra manages to detach itself from the usual sans serif stiffness by paying tribute to the less-predictable style of brush lettering. The typeface was conceived to challenge the limits between utilitarian and decorative.

Women in Graphic Design

From the publisher: "Why do apparently so few women feature in the history of design? Why is it still the case that so few women speak at conferences? Why are previously well-known women ‘forgotten’? What effects does the gender debate have on today’s everyday working life? Are women judged today solely on the basis of their quality of work? Since professionalization began, female graphic designers have been working actively and successfully, but the artificial synthesis of masculinity and artistic genius has repeatedly prevented women — with few exceptions — to be recognised in ‘official’ design history. Still today, despite the claim that the gender issue is obsolete in graphic design, only a tiny percentage of active female designers enjoy public acclaim. This opulently illustrated volume sets out to fill this gap. It presents significant female designers and portrays their paths to professionalization, with numerous short biographies alongside essays, sources and detailed discussions with currently well-known female designers."
The book is available in the US and Europe.

Codex 2

The long-awaited second issue of the Codex magazine, published by John Boardley, features an extensive article on the work of Czech type designer Oldřich Menhart. Paul Shaw collaborated with Veronika, whose dissertation for her MA at the University of Reading, served as one of the main sources of information. The articles takes a new look, more from a calligraphic point of view, and includes a selection of commented revivals of Menhart's typefaces. It sheds yet another light on his remarkable work. See some images here.
Btw, the Codex website uses our Karmina Sans as main body text.
