    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?

    Typotage (“Type Days”) is a local event in Leipzig, Germany. Its name is a misnomer: this year (and the previous years), Typotage is a one-day event only. The header image uses FF Quadraat by Fred Smeijers – who teaches at the local HGB Leipzig. The red date is rendered in letters that probably are derived from a lettering model by Jan Tschichold – a Leipzig native (his constructivist letterforms have been made into a typeface named Iwan Reschniev).

    The web design is far from appealing – Web 1.0, complete with frames, tables and small Verdana, and, what’s more severe, without any typographic love. It worked, though: the event has sold out.
