South by Southwest 2 week countdown

Mashable. Type Tasting Typography Workshop at SXSW

It’s just two weeks until South by Southwest Interactive starts, described as a “massive festival, bringing together the brightest minds in digital media, technology, journalism, health, film, space, business, gaming and more, with hundreds of sessions, parties and meetups spread across dozens of venues around Austin.”

The Type Tasting Global Lettering Workshop is on Saturday March 8th and has been listed by Mashable as one of the ’38 SXSW 2014 Panels You Can’t Miss’

Type Tasting Global Lettering Workshop
When: 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Who: Sarah Hyndman
Where: AT&T Conference Center Classroom #103
Why: This should be a fun, experiential workshop that will allow you to get your hands dirty with typography. Use templates, customize letters and learn about emerging trends in typography.

So for the next two weeks Type Tasting is going to be all about the type and letters we see around us in the form of the signs and wayfinding we use to navigate our lives.

If you have any research suggestions, or would just like to hear about my adventures while I’m in Austin, I’ll be tweeting typography from @TypeTasting and everything else as @SarahHyndman
