From 24 to 29 June 2004, the promising ?2nd International conference on Typography?:http://www.uom.gr/uompress/2nd_int_conference/introduction.html will propose ?again?:http://www.typofonderie.com/gazette/hot_news/?id=9 many very good lectures on typography. Among the notable speakers: Neville Brody, Jacques André, Robin Kinross, Erik Spiekermann, David Carson, Lucas de Groot, Letterror, David Lemon and many others that we miss. Some subjects sound fascinating, such ?New and updated fonts in the next version of Windows,? ?The psychology of word recognition,? ?Modern typography revised,? ?Putting legibility research in its right place: a history of legibility research,? ?Visual identity of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games,? and ?Sex and Type and Rock ?n? Roll.? Thessaloniki is a nice place to go, with good sun, food and now type. Everything is there to spend another good weekend.
This time, Jean François Porchez will cover ?his experience?:/gazette/articles/parisine on the design of Parisine.
