Without regard for the concept of "popular demand," 2014's Typophiles' Retreat is back! Join your two facilitators, along with a roomful of other typography nerds, for a free-flowing discussion of all things type. This is an audience-driven session, so come prepared to share your knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm with your colleagues.

Our first gathering featured passionate debates on the merits of discredited typefaces, word association exercises, and audience members sharing their favorite tricks and web resources. If you want to find out what happens this time around, and come away with some practical (and impractical) knowledge about typography, join us!
