Choosing types

January 2011

We recently heard that a (corrected and augmented) second edition is in the making. "Tipo elige tipo" features 16 articles by typographers and type designers, including Miguel Catopodis' article about Karmina and José Scaglione's about Bree. The book is fully set in Karmina as well. Visit the Tipo e website to find out more.

CreativePro

The successfull website CreativePro.com, a vast forum with topics related to the creative community, decided to take the jump and present their content with our webfont Cora. The new service of Extensis, WebINK, makes the implementation easy and fast. Cora, designed by Bart Blubaugh, is a sans serif, with an experimental bent, offering a large x-height, some contrast of stroke weight, and capitals inspired by classical lettering. Its proportions and structure lend themselves to be clearly legible on the screen.

Interview Slanted

Julia Kahl from the German design magazine Slanted interviewed Veronika this last May during TYPO Berlin. She asked her how Veronika came to type design, how TypeTogether started and why she thinks there are so few female typedesigners. The whole issue Nr. 12 is dedicated to female designers and their work and topics around. Additionally our typefaces Adelle and Bree are used throughout the magazine, both as bodytext and headlines.

Exhibition

Our typefaces Adelle and Maiola were selected in the first Ukrainian typeface competition and then exhibited at the Rutenia Calligraphy & Typography Festival in Kyiv. Lectures, master-classes and an open-air workshop "Street Calligraphy" were all part of the two-day event. The exhibition though runs until the 22nd November. On the festival website it reads: "The festival mission is to revive an interest in calligraphy and typography in Ukraine, to provide a place to communicate for calligraphers, typeface designers, typographers, publishers, creative professionals, advertising industry workers, art students, and all the people who care about visual form of word or book as well as about its content."

Tage der Typografie

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.
This workshop is aimed to graphic design professionals and students. It may be also of interest to calligraphers, editorial designers, information designers and industrial designers. By means of tracing pre-selected letters, participants will experiment with structural elements of lettershapes such as contrast, connections, weight of strokes and curve velocity. They will also learn the basics behind sketching an alphabet. This will be aided by short lessons that will establish essential knowledge units that support the theoretical framework and the concepts behind the exercises. The resulting characters will be openly discussed and corrections and alternatives will be shared among participants. During the second day, students will digitize their work according to a specific set of instructions and will have the opportunity to touch on more advanced questions, such as diacritics, coding, font family development and font production.
