The typographic hackathon returns
This year Typographics will host another edition of the TypeLab — a series of live, hands-on workshops, demos, and experiments organized by Petr van Blokland. A preliminary listing of the TypeLab events is now live, but please note that — according to TypeLab tradition — the schedule is subject to change at any moment.
Following a long history of informal and experimental events, TypeLab this year (made possible with a generous sponsorship from Klim Type Foundry) promises to be as fun and interesting as it was at Typographics last year.
The TypeLab will be open June 15–20, 10am–5pm, in room LL-101 at 41 Cooper Square, just across the street from the Great Hall where the main Typographics conference is taking place, and right next door to the Typographics Book Fair.
Typographics conference attendees are welcome at any time. The general public is also welcome with a free RSVP except on Friday & Saturday (RSVP separately for Wednesday & Thursday and/or Sunday & Monday).
This year’s TypeLab page was designed by Type@Cooper graduate CJ Dunn, using an animation made by Just van Rossum with DrawBot. (If you want to learn how to make similar animations, sign up for Just’s workshop, Python Programming with Drawbot for Beginners.)
