Kerning Conference 2017

7 July, 2017

I had the fortune to attend my second Kerning conference last month. On both occasions I had a lovely time in the tiny village of Faenza alternating sips of espresso and wine while hanging out with some of the best people in type. Even though the conference itself is quite small (one day of talks, maybe roughly 200 attendees), there are two bonus days of workshops, and a few days before and after the conference to extend the experience. We happened to be there for 4 days and enjoyed every minute. It’s a testament to the IRL fun we had seeing as how I took hardly any photos. There were so many lunches, dinners, aperitivos, late night bars, etc. and I didn’t take a single photo. Nor did I take any inside the conference other than during the talks. It’s sad for showing off here, or for digital memories, but it was a great time.

Shoutouts to Antonio Cavedoni, Dan Rhatigan & Dan Reynolds who gave my three favorite presentations.
