Win 1 out of 5 Aaron James Draplin “Pretty Much Everything Up To January 9, 2015″-Poster [closed]

We have cleaned up our TYPO archives and found 10 Aaron James Draplin posters, that we want to give away now.

They got lost on the way to Berlin, were eventually found by KLM and then sent to TYPO Berlin 2015. The man for bold colors and dangerous ideas collected every little logo he made, wordmark and whatever else he could fit into it.

DMIG Cover Workshop Kiefer F

Workshop: Cover Denken! mit Stefan Kiefer in Hamburg

Sein Cover Workshop auf der TYPO 2015 war ein großer Erfolg. In zwei Stunden gingen die Teilnehmer auf einen Kurztrip durch die Höhepunkte aus 60 Jahren Spiegel Cover-Gestaltung. Der Titelredaktion gehörte Stefan Kiefer 18 Jahre an, 13 Jahre als Cover Artdirector. Im praktischen Teil des Workshops entwarfen mehrere Teams zwei fiktive Magazine mit unterschiedlichem Themenschwerpunkt, entwickelten Cover-Ideen, Kommunikationsstrategien und Scribbels. Das Ganze in real time, unter realistischen Arbeitsbedingungen –hoher Zeitdruck inklusive.

Am 5. September leitet Stefan Kiefer in Hamburg den Dmig-Workshop »Cover Denken!«. Die Teilnehmer haben einen ganzen Tag Zeit sich der Gestaltung von Covern zu widmen und wertvolle Einblicke in den Arbeitsalltag als Kreativdirektor zu erhalten.

Report from the first Typographics Conference in New York

The TYPO Team likes to look beyond the Tellerrand. So when we heard the announcement of a new typographic venue in June in New York, we were eager to visit the premiere. When we met Frank Grießhammer at Typographics and he offered to write a post for the TYPO Blog, we didn‘t hesitate to accept.

Frank (FF Quixo, HWT Tuscan, Stempel Elan) studied Graphic Design in Saarbrücken, Germany and Florence, Italy. In 2008, his graduation project led to the creation of a experimental type foundry, “Kiosk Fonts”. An internship at FontShop International brought Frank to the Robothon 2009 conference in The Hague – a turning point for his career. He had the chance to spend the best year of his life studying at KABK The Hague, and graduated with a Master of Design in Type and Media in 2010. Frank has been part of the Adobe Type Team in California since 2011.

Typejockeys: Seriously Special Friends

You can tell right away: the Typejockeys are serious and special. They boast the combined type design skills of an alumni of each of the two type design MA courses in Europe and they are not only business partners and colleagues but friends who have known each other f-o-r-e-v-e-r.
