Posted as part of a little survey about websites for conferences on typography and graphic design – how do these specialist events present themselves typographically, in 2013?
Typism has a cute voguish logo, lettered by Aurelie Maron. There is an official conference typeface, but it is not used for the website. Not everyone will find the light grey on middle grey text easy to read. Laudably, the site has been optimized for a number of screen widths. Unfortunately, tablets in portrait orientation was not one of them (see menu). It is easy to miss the main information, since accessing it requires a double click on “About”. Well, the event is still some time away. Let’s see how this evolves. The base is not as bad as it may sound here.
