Video Ristretto: Wayne Thompson – Beyond Helvetica
With the full program for Respond 17 now out, this week’s Video Ristretto reprises the talk given by Wayne Thompson at our Direction conference in November last year, as he is again on the schedule for Respond.
Once you see this talk, you’ll quickly see why we wanted to get Wayne back, this time in front of an audience of front end designers. The subtitle of his Direction talk is “everything you always wanted to know about fonts* But were too afraid to ask”, which is a pretty fair summary, I think you’ll agree.
Note that Wayne has lined up another fascinating talk for Respond, a case study of how he met the challenge of creating a font family to represent Australia’s national public broadcaster, the ABC. But for now, enjoy Wayne presenting “Beyond Helvetica”.
