Valerie Brewster

Valerie has this to say about ATypI: " I just received a letter from ATypI in my mail box with a brief note and a credit card receipt. My credit card had been charged for membership dues 2000-01. Since I had not intended to renew my subscription, I feel quite annoyed! This event, and the sudden traffic on the ATypI e-mail list has caused me to revisit the question of paying my dues. I'm a graphic designer, focusing on books, publications, and the occasional web site. Many of the members of this list are designers of typefaces I love. I went to the Boston conference. However, it seems that ATypI is an organization for type designers, exclusively. I thought there would be more for me as a typophile and a typographer (that is: one who uses type). Yet there are no attractive typography examples arriving in my mailbox, the web site doesn't work (I just tried to register as a member and the "submit" buttons didn't function), and the conferences are distant and expensive. My efforts to engage discussion on the old web site about the Boston conference I did attend met with no response. The glowing "reviews" of the conference written by ATypI insiders didn't seem to be concerned with how the organization's big event was perceived by the rank and file members. I know my criticisms were not unique as I heard the same comments from other attendees. Is ATypI interested in engaging type users? Why should I renew my membership? "
