Thanks you FDA DGC and thank you Jeff Faulkner from XBOX. thanks to you i got to go to Typo london 2011. I definitely made the most out of it and was lucky to be one of the 20 to do the calligraphy workshop!
As everyone had much better cameras than me, and are probably take much more interesting photos than me, i thought it would be a nice idea to sketch some of the speakers I went to see.
We're making a newspaper inspired by this even. or well at least as a starting point, if this even was inspiration than I'm already losing hope. I am very thankful to go to the event and i took a lot from it, BUT
I was disappointed at the organisation, the place it was held and some of the talks were very dry, or with one particular well known individual, the same old stuff I've seen before and with no energy.
If i had paint the £700 odd quid i would of been very disappointed.
wasn't even that much type there to be honest. having said that there was loads of great stuff and I learnt loads. anyway heres some of my sketches of this years typo london!
