FoT have been on a travel adventure for the past 4 weeks (Thank you: Craig Redman, Dan Cassaro and Joe Marianek for holding it down while we were away). During this time we were fortunate to see some new places and meet some incredible people. Our first destination was Weimar, Germany to give a lecture and conduct a workshop at the Typogravieh-Lebt symposium. (A special thanks goes out to the students who put some serious blood, sweat and tears into making this happen).
After spending a couple days in Germany we headed southeast to Croatia to see Erik’s family who live on the Dalmatian coast. This is where we had time to carve a piece into drift wood we found at a beach in Peljesac, Croatia (see above). From here we left and headed back home to NY and after a quick rest headed down to New Orleans to teach a *workshop at TypeCon. We highly recommend the conference to those who have an affinity for type. It is a great conference full of talented/inspiring creatives. So, do yourself a favor and go next year! (A special thanks to Deborah and all the TypeCon volunteers who donated their time to making sure the rest of us had a great experience).
Be on the look on Friends of Type as we will be posting the pieces that were created from the attendees of our workshops in Germany and at TypeCon. More to come soon.
