Contrary to popular belief, fonts are not merely beautiful hobbies for type nerds or simple tools for any task, but can really make a difference. Join Rainer Scheichelbauer on a tour through the political side of type design.

PLUS: Font Gamification. Can animations be put into fonts? And what about games? Learn the answer to these questions, and how Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sparked the development of an experimental font, in this short and fun presentation. Warning: Contains no prepared slides, all typing is done live.

In this workshop, we will build a vector animation and bring it to life in a web browser, with some simple HTML and CSS. It’s cool, it’s fun, it’s easy.
