    As a type designer, I know the industry can be insular and closed off. I'd like to provide an insider look at type design practice, type history, and the type design industry, and show some of the work I've done along the way. We'll get into the technical details of copyright, language support, OpenType features, font licensing, and the newly-developed variable fonts. We will discuss these issues as they relate to both print, web and mobile. We'll cover ways to improve your productivity when using type while also achieving quality graphic design a step above the competition.

    I'll show fonts I've designed, and content from my talk at the 2019 Typecon in Minneapolis, and do my best to explain why we never have enough fonts.

    Speaker Bio:

     Anna Richard is a Graphic Designer and typographic aficionado locally at designRoom, assisting with production and design on a variety of projects. Anna earned a degree in Visual Communication Design from Kent State University, where she specialized in typography, lettering, and type design. Before working at designRoom, Anna was part of a team of contractors at Google Fonts who improved and expanded the design of typefaces in the Google Fonts library. Her favorite font that she hasn't worked on is Greta Mono. She owns three different coffee makers, and is on a never-ending quest to find her favorite pen.

    Speaker Bio:

    Before becoming a Health Plan Specialist and starting her insurance business, Lori Lipton was a graphic designer for over 20 years. During that period she was freelance 50% of the time so she understands our industry. While freelancing she had to obtain her own health insurance. After being laid off from a full-time position she had held for 8 years, Lori obtained her insurance license in 2002. Helping others find health insurance plans and maximizing their benefits is no the focus of her passion. As an independent agent, Lori can offer health plans from various insurance carriers and an objective view of what’s available in the marketplace today. Through an educational and consulting approach, she is dedicated to helping clients choose which health plans will best meet their needs and fit their budget.
