My fellow design colleague, Lauren Meranda, and I were invited to speak at TypeCon this year in Seattle, WA. We presented about the Art & Design Creative Retreat that we lead at Judson University. It was two firsts for me: My first time being in Seattle and my first time attending TypeCon. Both were wonderful and enlightening experiences. The first day of the conference was for all of the typography educators and we had a really diverse and interesting bunch with many thought-provoking and inspiring presentations. It was an honor to be part of this group. The following days were more focused on the nitty-gritty details of typography and it was a fascinating world to step into! Working around the conference schedule, Lauren and I managed to see a good bit of the city, visiting the Public Library, riding a ferry boat, and taking long walks to different restaurants and parks. It was a great experience and a top notch conference, I hope to go again in future years to come.
