ATypI Conference – Day Two

Náhled: ATypI Conference – Day Two

The weather in Mexico City is pretty monotonous: there is a rain at least once a day. ATypI conference continued with a load of lectures. One of the most successful presentations was a story of the letter ñ by José Scaglione & Andreu Balius (published in TYPO #32). And what else?

ATypI Conference – Day Three

Náhled: ATypI Conference – Day Three

I found the fact the conference only had single-track lectures very comfortable. No dilemma whom to prefer. I was also pretty satisfied with the idea od 20-minute lectures, it led to a speakers’ briefness. During the third (and last) day I presented my collection of posters from the 1989 Velvet revolution.
