What’s better than adding new skills to your resume? Doing it on our dime! Follow WebINK on Twitter to be the first to know about our conference pass giveaway for WebVisions NYC.
WebVisions explores the future of web and mobile design, technology, user experience and business strategy with an all-star lineup of visionary speakers, including author, filmmaker and futurist Douglas Rushkoff, Ethan Nicolle, creator of Axe Cop and Jason Kunesh from the Obama for America campaign! Oh, and also one of our favorite typography experts, Thomas Phinney.
The event kicks off with a full day of workshops followed by special evening events, including Thomas Phinney’s “Font Detective: Extra Bold” which explores cases of forged documents (sponsored by AIGA/NY). Attendees will learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries. Learn more about Thomas’ upcoming talks here.
This will be followed by two days of sessions, keynotes and panels, including “Typography is the New Black.” Thomas Phinney presents an array of of the best cutting-edge typography, alongside a few cautionary tales of how crap typography can contradict a message or damage a brand.
