TYPO Talks: What attracted you to TYPO SF?
Jenny Thai: I really like that TYPO SF takes an interdisciplinary approach to design. Our creative team includes writers and strategists in addition to designers and developers, so there’s something for everyone.
TT: Have you been to TYPO SF before? If so, what was your favorite part of the experience?
JT: Yes! I attended TYPO SF for the first time last year and thought Mandy Brown was amazing. It was awesome to hear a writer/editor’s perspective on web design. I also really enjoyed Matthew Butterick’s talk on the web advertising economy.
TT: What gets your creative rhythm going?
JT: Coffee, books, and blogs (especially design blogs). The Internet is my creative oyster!
TT: Which of our speakers are you most looking forward to?
JT: I’m a big fan of Lisa Congdon’s work, so I’m excited to hear her speak. I’m also really looking forward to Maria Popova. Brain Pickings is one of my go-to sites when I need to indulge my curiosity.
TT: Do you have any current projects you or your group is working on that you would like to share?
JT: We’re getting ready to kick off some new projects at Yammer, so it’s perfect timing for us to attend TYPO SF and get some inspiration. We can’t wait.
