Trajan in Movie Posters at SXSW in half an hour

I am very excited about bringing ScreenFonts – arguably the most successful series on The FontFeed – live on stage, here at SXSW Interactive 2012. Two Decades of Trajan in Movie Posters is a semi-serious investigation about the most popular typeface in movie poster history, and touches upon type selection, typography trends in movie posters, and the omni-presence of Trajan. Wish me luck, I have about 400 seats to fill.

  2. I am not important enough a speaker yet to have it simulcast, but there is video on the way, in a month or two.
