Description

LECTURE
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.

BIOGRAPHY
Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer was born in Vienna and studied photography, philosophy, and Dutch. Today, he creates and produces typefaces, teaches type design, gives type design workshops, translates Dutch books on typography into German, and writes articles and Python scripts. Rainer joined the Glyphs team in 2012 and has been writing tutorials and the handbook. A few years ago he started his type service office “Schriftlabor” with three other designers in Vienna.
