3Type Type School, Shanghai

Under the motto “From Digit to Digital (从「指尖」到「数位」)”, the first ever Type School organized by Shanghai-based foundry 3type (三言) will take place in Shanghai from July 8 to 22, 2017. I am both delighted and proud of being part of the teaching team alongside Susanne Zippel, Georg Seifert, Zheng Chuyang (鄭初陽), Mira Ying (應寧) from Type is Beautiful, and many others.

Typodarium 2017 – out now

Hermann Schmidt Verlag, Mainz, recently published the 2017 version of legendary Typodarium, a tear-off calendar with a daily dose of fresh type specimen. You propably wouldn’t want to tear off these beautiful pages, though. This year, Typodarium was opened for Non-Latin entries, which is good news to me. It was an honor to be asked to submit three pages – April 7 (Frust, a new sans serif development), August 28 (Hong Kong Street Face 港街黑), and October 14 (AR Laowai Sung 文鼎老外宋). Better order your copy soon!
