Now that we’re gradually recovering from a wild TYPO Night it starts to sink in that TYPO Berlin 2011 “Shift” is truly over. Judging from the many commentaries (and my own experience) it qualifies as an excellent edition. I was particularly impressed with the finale, a perfect hat trick by Petr van Blokland’s wake-up call Designer update: what’s next?, Thomas Lupo heart-warming and inspirational Instructions for breaking free, and Christoph Niemann’s hilarious yet insightful Life is what you make it – even if you’re a graphic designer. This was an example of flawless programming for which I have to commend the organisation. People who want to get a taste of the TYPO Berlin experience the customary “Impressions” video below was posted even before the conference officially ended. Also from FontShopTV are podcasts with Oliver Reichenstein, Donald Beekman & Donald Roos, Tim Fendley, and Michael Johnson. Enjoy!

  1. All very nice, but until I can subscribe to these videos in iTunes and watch them on my iPhone on the subway they might as well not exist. I’m certainly not going to sit staring at the computer for hours.

  2. Well, these videos are all four to not-even-six minutes long. That hardly qualifies as “sit staring at the computer for hours”, does it? ; )
