Typotechnica was a two day conference hosted by Linotype for the fourth time. Held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, it was conveniently close to the Linotype headquarters in Bad Homburg on April 27-29th. The conference was fairly small (maybe 100-200 people), but had a good atmosphere and was the perfect mix of topics for me as a Reading student just starting out with type design. It was neither too technical nor too basic. I walked away from the even inspired and excited. (It was also here that I met Otmar Hoefer and was offered the opportunity to work at Linotype after my graduation!)
Tom Phinney from Adobe has written an extensive review of the conference, including notes and key points from many talks.
