Ampersandconf was held in Brighton at the Dome yesterday, and was an excellent one-day conference all about typography – perfect for that Type of geek!
It wasn’t just focused on web typography, but brought together those from the printed world as well. It was a very enjoyable day and something a bit different from my usual conference attendance. The day was opened by Vincent Connare [left], designer of the much-maligned Comic Sans (amongst many in his distiunguished career)! Other speakers whom I particularly enjoyed were Jon Tan, Tim Brown and Mark Boulton.
On the Saturday, Richard Rutter had also organised a guided tour of Brighton led by Phil Baines, who pointed out some hidden gems of typography around the town. All in all, a most enjoyable couple of days.
Here is a selection of my best images from the trip:
