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.

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.

The meeting was a stunning success as seats were sold out more than a month in advance. On the other hand, considering the loss of income this entails for ATypI as an organization, the lack of a contingency plan is also a failure of sorts. The general feeling was that this was possibly one of the best ATypI conferences ever.

ATypI 2017

ATypI 2017 was held in Montreal, Canada, from September 12-16, 2017. The main organizer was Alessandro Colizzi, closely assisted by Alexandre Saumier-Demers. The theme was Atypique. Introduction to the team.

The conference blurb: Join the global typographic community in Montréal, Quebec, Canada, September 12-16, 2017. ATypI is celebrating sixty years of typographic education and camaraderie this year. As an organization founded by Charles Peignot of the famed Deberny & Peignot foundry in Paris, it's fitting that we commemorate this milestone in a grand French-speaking capital. The theme of ATypI's 2017 conference is Atypique. Montréal is known for many things: for its blend of new and old; for its bilingualism and pluralistic society. Montréal is a city of dualities: East Side and West Side, English- and French-speaking, the old city and the new, European sophistication and American casual. It's a laid-back city enjoying the benefits of a low-inequality society. It is an atypical city compared to the rest of Canada and the United States. In a broader context, Atypique means something more daring; something that doesn't quite follow convention; something a little bit rebellious and edgy. Atypique holds a mirror to history and understands tradition, but dares to be different. In typographical terms, Atypique hints at all things---products, practices, processes, people---escaping the rules or bending paradigms. Atypique evokes, to paraphrase Alan Fletcher, looking sideways at all facets of contemporary types and typography: from technology to aesthetics, from economics to politics, from Latin to the world writing systems, from hand lettering to screen legibility, and from education to the very notion of authorship.

The three tremendous keynote speakers: Roger Black, Paula Scher, and Rod McDonald.

The identity of ATypI was expertly and daringly designed by Julien Hébert, who is based in Montreal.

Rebellion Acceptance Overdrive: Type Design at CalArts 1988-2001

Experimental and contemporary type exhibition at the California Institute of the Arts (Valencia, CA), October 14-20, 2001. Hrant Papazian's harsh criticism of this exhibition and of the CalArts type program: "Nike typography. It appears that for almost 15 years now students of the type design program at CalArts have been taught to just do it. During the third week of October, CalArts staged a revealing (albeit severely under-promoted) retrospective of student work, dubbed Rebellion Acceptance Overdrive. Experimentation and discovery are at the heart of education, but this oeuvre had entirely too much deconstruction and not at all enough purpose. What is a type design program that doesn't teach you how to produce fonts others would like to use? Summer camp. Jens Gehlhaar was the one exception I noted, in terms of a student who took the CalArts philosophy seriously but refused to stop thinking, producing relevant experiments like the CIA Compendium, as well as tasteful, usable fonts such as Alfa Sans and Precrime. Then there was Lee Schulz with his dedicated craftsmanship and astonishing inspirational range: the hyper-decorative Antoinette; the gloriously organic Salome; the surprising low-res Batterie; the reserved Minister. But the bulk of the designs suffer from a clear lack of guidance, in the details as well as the roots. In the end, students who had both talent and intellect produced promising work from day one; the others were still producing crap upon graduation. What was the faculty teaching the students, exactly? Rebellion without a cause is just hooliganism. And now that the revolution has fizzled out, what will they teach, and who will want to learn it? The CalArts type design program has been about grunge typography. Although it's no longer fashionable to celebrate that, it remains relevant to discuss it, if only because it existed. This exhibit sparked - and could have helped answer - some interesting questions. What was destroyed/created when Ed Fella's entirely non-digital work was transmogrified into 99.44% pure bézier? What are the formal effects of our digital tools on the results? Why was Cholla converted from a botanical design to a mechanical one on its way to the commercial world? And the biggest question: how was this all worth it, to the students?". Read Lee Schulz's passionate reply. [Google] [More]  ⦿

I cite things I will be quoting for the rest of: In Latin America, we propose to socialise this vast, historic fund of knowledge, by means of an approach to variations of what we know and by learning through the discovery of that which we do not know. Like air, like water, the knowledge itself, like ideas, typography is a social asset that provides people with equal opportunities. A veritable universal heritage. [...] Seven hundred people attended the three-day sessions of tipoGráfica buenosAires, typography for real life. Many travelled from the interior of Argentina, while others arrived from Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay and other Latin American countries.

Type tart cards

A tart card competition at the St. Bride Library in London in 2009. They explain: We would like you to design a tart card either for a typeface or a letter of the alphabet. If you are unfamiliar with these things, tart cards are the means by which London prostitutes advertise their services. Step in to any Central London call box and you can contemplate up to eighty cards inviting you to be tied, teased, spanked or massaged either in luxury apartments, fully-equipped chambers or the privacy of your own hotel room. So pervasive are these things, and so curious is their typography, images and copy writing they are now regarded as bona fide items of accidental art and have something of a cult following. Once on the periphery of design, the cards have influenced the work of many mainstream artists including Royal Academician Tom Philips and Sex Pistols designers, Ray and Nils Stevenson. Perhaps they can inspire you too? Examples: 1, 2, 3. Exhibition at KasselsKramer, London, 22-29 June 2009. See also Wallpaper's June 2009 issue entitled Sex Issue: Type Tart Cards.

  • Heute haben die Art-direktoren keine Idee mehr, bestenfalls einen Gag.
  • Ich sauf den Landwein, mein AD bestellt sich Chateau la Piss.
  • Wer pfeift 'n hier?.
  • Ich brauche Euch, ihr verschwitzten, nach Knoblauch stinkenden, blöden Dinger, die mir abendelang erzählen, wie ihre Freundin mühselig in Winsen an der Luhe töpfert.
  • Der Fotograf will von Euch Art-Direktoren doch nur, bevor er in die Kiste springt, dass ihr anruft, bevor alle Ideen schon fertig sind.
  • Ihr seid doch die Quarktaschen-Kai-Krauses. Das macht ihr doch mit links am Komposter. Ihr braucht uns Trottel doch gar nicht mehr.

Workshop Typo Chaumont 2005

Three day workshop in which students at the Lycée Charles de Gaulle were taught how to change existing characters in fonts (in this case, Serifa Bold) by the people of Bluerats (Julien Janiszewski). This prompted a violent reaction from Jean-François Porchez who did not like this approach to teaching type design: Cest une très bonne manière de faire de futurs pirates, hugh, cette méthode me reste en travers de la gorge. Il faut pas sétonner si par la suite, certaines fontes bien connues feront des petits dans le dos. Certaines présentés sont déjà, et franchement visible, dans de mauvais draps. Concevoir une fonte, cest pas jouer avec quelques effets daprès une base, et la sauver sous un autre nom. Cest du piratage, pas moins. Cest proprement scandaleux. In any case, eight typefaces resulted from the workshop:

  • Sébastien Pascot: Disgurp 23.
  • Anne Richard: Empty.
  • Céline Bouvier: Molumbo.
  • Amandine Aramini & Romain Poisson: Nodine.
  • Arnaud Barthélemy & Jean Kiener: Panic Room.
  • Teddy Picaudé: Rusty.
  • Mélody Didier: Scritch Word.
  • Michaël Noiville: Untilted.
