ATypI 2011

The 2011 ATypI conference took place in Reykjavik, Iceland, from September 14-18, 2011, at the Harpa Concert Hall. The theme was the letter eth. This may well have been the first ATypI meeting in which the host country's President addressed the assembly. The local organizing team was led by Gunnar Vilhjalmsson and Hörðu Lárusson, and the conference was supported by the Association of Icelandic Graphic Designers, the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, and the Icelandic Design Center. The ATypI Reykjavík logo was designed by Birna Geirfinnsdóttir, using the typeface Frijky by Neelakash Kshetrimayum. Program. The stratospheric registration fee of 895 USD ensures that ATypI survives for another year---it has nothing to do with the actual expenses of the meeting.
