ffconf is a one-day event with a great vibe, lovely atmosphere and a well curated line-up each and every year. This year Julie and Remy Sharp ran ffconf twice. That means they ran the event on Thursday and on Friday again, which was not meant to be a two-day event, but a two times one-day event. My try to explain this on its own maybe already shows one of the issues they had to deal with, but I think many of the things Remy writes in his blog post, are a great learn for everybody running events. Thanks Remy for writing this. And one day, I manage to attend again!
Still fighting a cold, but good to be back in #Amsterdam for #fronteers16
We know pins won’t save the world, but wearing them might make us feel better. And convincing our likeminded liberal friends to vote for Hillary can go a long way, especially in a swing state.

“Fonts in Apps” – very handy (German) ebook by Frank Rausch. Lovely talk btw. at #typoday, Frank!
Jürgen Siebert posted this link on Twitter this morning. An interesting read about the shift to create or re-brand logos without using text anymore.
Great things need support. Support my friend Kai Brach and his Offscreen Magazine with their rebranding: http://rebranding.offscreenmag.com
Kai Brach runs Offscreen Magazine and The Modern Desk and is equally passionated about it as I am about beyond tellerrand. That’s why i love to chat withhim, where ever I meet him. This time he was in Australia, while I was in Krefeld and we had a nice conversation on Skype.
Check episode number 6 of my German show called TWUMBLE.
A few weeks ago, before my holidays, I have posted a link to an article by Yves Peters, in which he geeks out about the Typography of Star Trek. This one now does the same, but with the Netflix series Stranger Things.
Tobi is a musician. From the bottom of his heart he is a musician. In 2013, after he made some electronic music for a wrap-up video for beyond tellerrand, he suggested to make sketchnotes in music during the breaks between the talks. And since this, he is part of the btconf family, summarising the talks in music right after the speaker leaves the stage.
In show number 5 of TWUMBLE (in German), I was speaking with Tobi about passion, motivation, honesty and his life as a musician.
I love if someone is completely into one specific topic. Certainly for Yves Peters this is type and typography, especially when it comes to movies, as you might have noticed, when he gave his talk about Trajan in movie posters at beyond tellerrand. In one of his latest blog posts, he is writing about the typography of Star Trek … I love it!
