Font Detective, Extra Bold
Phinney discusses and shows evidence from several of the cases he has been called into as a typographic consultant, including a forged will, legislated point size requirements, a seemingly fake rabbi, and the forged documents about President Bush’s National Guard service. Learn how mistakes in typography, printing and font selection ruined what could have otherwise been perfectly good forgeries!
TYPOWEEK will be held from July 2-6 at Bau Design School. For more information, visit the TYPOWEEK site.
Second Stop: WebVisions Barcelona, July 7, 2012
On July 7, Phinney will present at WebVisions, which explores the future of the Web and mobile design, technology, user experience and digital media.

CSS3 OpenType: The New Web Typography
What if CSS3 supported amazing new capabilities so that type designers could bake their creativity into fonts and make them intelligent, so the fonts could do wild things for you, all on their own? Actually, it does, and they have. See how Phinney and his friends and colleagues have stretched what is possible with fonts, enabling not only fine typography, but fonts that translate languages, censor themselves, predict the future, and draw graphs. All on their own.
