Creating outstanding typographic designs is not just about choosing the right font. It’s about using all the super powers that font technology offers you today.
In her talk, Ulrike will reveal some playful type experiments that show evidence: type is not just for reading but it’s fun and entertaining, too.
You will learn how to tap the full potential of a font, which will enable you to create stunning designs, leaving your clients with a smile.
In 2009 Berlin-based type designer Ulrike Rausch founded her own type foundry called LiebeFonts, providing high-quality typefaces and hand-crafted letterings with a charming personality and obsessive attention to detail. Her growing portfolio of quality fonts has been used in publications, advertisements, and websites all around the world. She also creates custom typefaces for clients.
When Ulrike is not busy with her next font release, she enjoys teaching at art schools and giving type design workshops in her studio.
Last year she teamed up with letterer and writer Chris Campe and wrote the book “Making Fonts!”, a comprehensive guide to type design & font production.
