I have booked tickets to attend Typo 2012 in London which takes place 18/20 October 2012 (next week!).
The speakers include Paula Scher, a partner in Pentagram, Lucienne Roberts(First things first 2000), Simon Manchipp, Vaughan Oliver, Ken Garland (first things first), Erik Kessels, Kate Morass, Antony Burrill and many more.
The event is facilitated by Adrian Schaughnassy and Erik Spiekerman
Apart from getting to listen to a large number of influential Designers, thinkers and typographers; it is also an opportunity to debate what is currently happening in the industry.
In addition Grant McCraken, a respected author of Cultermatic, Culture and Consumption 1&2, Plenitude, Big hair, The Long Interview.
