Beyond TYPO – Looking at further events in the typographic community:
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.
