A quick note on my trip to the conference in Greece.
It has been fun and exciting. I had dinner last night with the director of Helvetica, Gary Hustwit. The man has been traveling all over the world promoting his film and will continue for another few weeks before a break. It was great to meet and talk with him. More on that later.
I also mostly sat in on a workshop lead by Gerry Leonidas from the UK. He gave a terrific presentation on Greek letter design and its history. Later that day I got the jet lag monstor bad so skipped out on the rest of the workshop but caught the end the next day where he presented more examples of student work and research on type design. Good stuff. More on that later too.
Today the full conference starts. More to come. I hope to also upload images in time.
