We are very happy that our 84-font grotesque sans serif Tablet Gothic and Alisa Nowak's serif and Fraktur Eskapade have been awarded with the Silver and the Bronze medal respectively in the European Design Awards 2013. With these awards Tablet Gothic and Eskapade join the exclusive group of TypeTogethers fonts awarded in the European Design Awards along with Abril, Adelle, Karmina, Karmina Sans and Bree.
Tablet Gothic, our biggest type family, was originally created as titling face, able to offer an extensive range of possibilities to designers working on publications in particular when different platforms are being used at the same time.
Alisa Nowak's Eskapade was built on the basis of a new dialogue between Roman and Fraktur letters, adapting these old style and broken forms for a contemporary use. Whereas Eskapade is conceived for continuous text in books and magazines with a good legibility in smaller sizes, Eskapade Fraktur directs the readers attention in headlines with its mixture of round and straight forms.

From the publisher: "Why do apparently so few women feature in the history of design? Why is it still the case that so few women speak at conferences? Why are previously well-known women ‘forgotten’? What effects does the gender debate have on today’s everyday working life? Are women judged today solely on the basis of their quality of work? Since professionalization began, female graphic designers have been working actively and successfully, but the artificial synthesis of masculinity and artistic genius has repeatedly prevented women — with few exceptions — to be recognised in ‘official’ design history. Still today, despite the claim that the gender issue is obsolete in graphic design, only a tiny percentage of active female designers enjoy public acclaim. This opulently illustrated volume sets out to fill this gap. It presents significant female designers and portrays their paths to professionalization, with numerous short biographies alongside essays, sources and detailed discussions with currently well-known female designers."
The book is available in the US and Europe.

This workshop is aimed to graphic design professionals and students. It may be also of interest to calligraphers, editorial designers, information designers and industrial designers. By means of tracing pre-selected letters, participants will experiment with structural elements of lettershapes such as contrast, connections, weight of strokes and curve velocity. They will also learn the basics behind sketching an alphabet. This will be aided by short lessons that will establish essential knowledge units that support the theoretical framework and the concepts behind the exercises. The resulting characters will be openly discussed and corrections and alternatives will be shared among participants. During the second day, students will digitize their work according to a specific set of instructions and will have the opportunity to touch on more advanced questions, such as diacritics, coding, font family development and font production.

Andreu Balius and José Scaglione will present a talk about the history and contemporary use of the "eñe" caracter in spanish-speaking countries. The lecture will be part of the main conference programme, happening at MIDE, in the historical center of Mexico City.

Ñ: A sign to convey a sound
The alphabet used by the Romans –Latin– had twenty-one letters and it was enough for all the phonemes needed to articulate it. But as its descendants developed, they gave birth to new phonemes, new sounds that evolved out of spoken Latin, and they presented problems of spelling. Scribes had to find new ways of representing new sounds. This lecture describes in detail the development and use of one of these sounds, the ntilde character, which became a symbol of literature and culture for all the spanish-speaking countries in the world. The “ñ” is the uncontested representative of the spanish language, currently spoken by over 400 million people around the globe and the most studied romance tongue in the world.
