Researchers in typography and typeface design

Panel session P01 | Palace A
Thursday 18 September | 18:00 – 18:45

Theme Education | Duration: 45 minutes

Following the successful first forum for researchers in the fields of typography and typeface design at the Brighton conference, the Education committee would like to offer again the opportunity to researchers to present informally their work. Whether you are at the beginning of your research project, halfway through, or recently concluded, we will provide an informal space configured for short presentations or briefings that set off discussions in a small group; and wall space for researchers to hang posters outlining their research throughout the conference. We would expect to see an A2 or A1 poster explaining the objectives and methodology of the project (and the findings, if you're at that stage).

Gerry Leonidas

Senior Lecturer in Typography University of Reading | United Kingdom

Gerry Leonidas studied Business Administration and Journalism, and worked in book and magazine publishing in Greece before finding his way to the University of Reading for postgraduate studies in typography. He never got round to leaving, and now teaches typographic design with a bias for the online. He is also the MA Typeface Design programme director, and designs when time permits, but mostly helps others tackle Greek typefaces. He is long overdue with his PhD on design processes in Greek and Latin digital typefaces.
