Thinking Typographically in Pittsburgh
I’m back from Web Design Day 2013, and starting to slow down and unwind. It was a quick trip, but I still found some time to relax in Pittsburgh and catch up with old friends. My talk, Thinking Typographically, went very well. I’ve never had this kind of experience, where so many people came up to me throughout the rest of the day to chat about my presentation. If you were one of those people, then from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
I have a few more people to thank, so bear with me.
Val and Jason put on a heck of a conference. They managed every last detail while being effortlessly charming. Huge thanks to them. Brad Frost braved some gnarly Pittsburgh traffic to give me a ride from the airport, so a big thanks to him too.
And former coworkers, Chris Cashdollar and Anthony Colangelo, thank you for the therapeutic late-night chatting and for the ride to the airport the next day.
Lastly, Neil Summerour gave me a sneak peek access to his new typeface, which I used for my slides, which was also much appreciated.
If anybody has interest in seeing the slides from my talk, then by all means, check them out. Sadly, if you weren’t there, they won’t make much sense, but don’t let that stop you.
I hope to develop this talk more, perhaps add a few more parts to it, and see if anybody else is interested in having me come to present. If you’re one of those people, well then, let’s chat!
