It is time for the countdown to TYPO-Berlin 2008 to begin. Today is my last day in Berlin for about six weeks; I’ll be returning in just 43 days, on the night before FontShop’s annual conference. About half a dozen students from the University of Reading’s MATD program will be in attendance; we booked early, and have been looking forward to the event since at least Decemeber.
Once again taking place in the freshly-renovated Haus der Kulturen der Welt on Berlin’s river Spree, this year will mark my fifth TYPO-Berlin conference. I’ve been to each one since 2004. Suddenly I feel much, much older. Where’s my cake?
