Trajan In Movie Posters Rescheduled To 4PM

I am very excited about finally bringing ScreenFonts – arguably the most successful series on The FontFeed – live on stage, here at TYPO Berlin 2011 “Shift”. Trajan in Movie Posters – The Rise And Fall of The Roman Empire 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.

Important – my presentation tomorrow Friday May 20 has been rescheduled to 4PM on the friendly Stage (near the bar). This is to allow type buffs to attend both Doug Wilson’s talk on the Show stage about his documentary The Linotype and the Second Revolution of Printing at 3PM and mine. I would like to thank the splendid TYPO organisation for taking care of this.

  1. Next you can do an investigation into how Futura Extra Bold & Gill Sans Extra Bold — usually in red — became the go-to typography for comedy films.

  2. That topic is already covered briefly in my Trajan presentation.
