ATypI Hong Kong 2012

I am extraordinarily pleased that the upcoming ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale) conference will be held in Hong Kong: ATypI Hong Kong 2012. The dates are October 10th through the 14th, 2012, and the theme is between black and white (墨 in Chinese). For font developers who relish at the thought of discussing font-related issues and ideas with others in the same industry, the annual ATypI conference represents a unique opportunity. And, given its venue for this year’s iteration, a larger-than-usual number of CJK font developers are likely to attend, and the number of CJK-related presentations and workshops should be greater than usual.

In any case, I am planning to attend and present at this conference, and very much look forward to meeting other CJK font developers there.

  1. I’m sure some of Japanese major type foundries and Independent foundries are planning to attend ATypI Hong Kong and maybe (I hope) apply for a presentation there. Usual ATypI were very far from Japan, so it was very big deal, but the upcoming one is held at the closest place than ever, so we should come there and meet together with the foundries, type designers in Asia and type lovers from across the world. I’m also planning to be there. I’m very curious about the type design situation in Asia and want to know how asian type designers deal with the combination of Latin and Asian type design.

    • I very much looking forward to meeting you again, in October, though we will probably meet earlier, in late June, for the one-day AFDKO workshop that I am working to set up.

  2. Note that the deadline for submissions has been extended to April 30, 2012:
