Tobias Frere-Jones: Decompiling History
Starts: 20 February 2018 7:00pm
Ends: 20 February 2018 8:30pm
St Bride Foundation / 14 Bride Lane, London
History is a peerless teacher and anchor in type design. But is there only one way to learn from it? Frere-Jones has spent decades studying type history and working with today’s rasterizing technology. Using recent releases as examples, he looks at a new speculative approach to history, and its application in current designs.
Over 25 years, Tobias Frere-Jones has established himself as one of the world’s leading typeface designers, creating some of the most widely used typefaces, including Interstate, Poynter Oldstyle, Whitney, Gotham, Surveyor, Tungsten and Retina.
Tobias received a BFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992. He joined the faculty of the Yale University School of Art in 1996 and has lectured throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. His work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2006, Royal Academy of Visual Arts The Hague (KABK) awarded him the Gerrit Noordzij Prijs for his contributions to typographic design, writing and education. In 2013 he received the AIGA Medal in recognition of exceptional achievements in the field of design.
So, 2017’s edition in Düsseldorf was sold out again in March already. Why not being early then with announcing bits of what we have for the fourth edition in Berlin? As usual we give our very best to bring you motivating and engaging talks and topics from a wide variety of subjects. Presentations about design, technology, inspiration and much more paired with many opportunities to meet and chat to all the other people at the event.
Something new is cooking for you. Come back soon to hear more, but safe the date, if you want to kick off the new year creatively with us: January 15–17, 2018. Tickets are available from September 11th on. Stay tuned…
Granshan is the premier forum for typeface design and typography in a global context.
Our annual conference provides a space to present the research behind innovation in global typeface design, and make connections with exceptional practitioners in the field.
To mark our tenth anniversary we return to our original location, in Yerevan: a crossroads of cultures, and a place with a deep engagement with the written word. Our theme is “Living Letters”: we are inspired by the combination of a growing awareness of the complexity in regional and local cultures, and the constant change in global typography driven by new ways of authoring and reading content.

Latino Film Festival, San Diego
25th San Diego Latino Film Festival
(March 15-25, 2018)
Submit your poster design for a chance to be a part of our history!
The San Diego Latino Film Festival (SDLFF) turns 25! We invite *design professionals, artists, and students* from all over the world to produce a commemorative poster design that will represent the history and legacy of the SDLFF.

We invite you and all other visionary designers to be a part of our silver anniversary — 25 and still going strong! — by submitting your project to consideration. The commemorative poster design shall celebrate our core values and our passion for Latino culture.
Your design will receive national and international exposure, including but not limited to: the cover of the Official SDLFF 2018 Program book, print ads, TV commercials, social media posts, ads and web banners.
