Font of Knowledge: Tales From a Type Designer

While we are planning our next meetup that is going to be on Typography, I would like to share the info for this FREE Typography event at SVC.

In this presentation, Laura Worthington will share her experiences as a type designer and answer these questions (plus whatever ones you happen to ask):

> Can you really make a living as a type designer?
> With a gazillion fonts already out there, how do you come up with fresh ideas?
> What’s the actual process of designing and marketing a typeface?
> What, exactly, is the difference between a font and a typeface?

Here is a link to full description and registration:

Please RSVP here, so we can attend together. Hope you can make it!

    The event is free and usually a couple of people who RSVP don't show up. I would call SVC right before the event and tell them how much you would like to attend and if they have an extra spot open. If you don't live far, you can take a chance and pop-in to see if they accommodate you.
