Speakers and their talks:
Berlin-based type designer and letterer Ulrike Rausch holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design from Potsdam University of Applied Science (Germany).
In 2009 Ulrike founded her own type foundry called LiebeFonts, providing high-quality typefaces and hand-crafted letterings with a charming personality and obsessive attention to detail.
Ulrike will show how she designs typefaces and how she builds fonts. Ulrike will also demonstrate how nerdy OpenType programming adds just the right analog touch to her handwriting style. You will learn how to use pro fonts like a pro—no matter if you use layout software like Adobe InDesign or a standard word processor like Microsoft Word.

Since 2010 she creates iPhone/iPad apps e.g. Conni (Carlsen Verlag). Many of her edutainment games received awards.
She also works as a freelance developer and consultant. She loves to learn and share her knowledge. Renate lives with her husband and two kids in Hamburg.
