TYPO London 2012: Social

TYPO is a series of International design talks pioneered in Germany and now also hosted in London and San Francisco. Each TYPO event focuses on a topical and relevant theme, which the speakers relate to with their personal presentations.

The theme for TYPO London 2012 is Social. The conference will endevour to investigate the many ways in which designers can function socially (...that doesn't mean in the bar!).
Now although it's short notice, the event is actually this weekend - Friday and Saturday -19/20th and I believe there are still some last minute tickets available. The days are long (10am-8pm!) so although the tickets are pretty expensive, they represent good value for money. The event is held at Logan Hall and Jeffery Hall, off Russell Square.
This is the confirmed list of speakers:
Kirsty Carter & Emma Thomas (A Practice for Everyday Life) • Rick Banks (Face37) • Paul Barnes • Béa Beste • Tim Beard (Bibliothèque) • Sara de Bondt • Irma Boom • Anthony Burrill • Matthew Butterick • Tony Chambers (Wallpaper*) • Patrick Cox • Joshua Davis • Noel Douglas & Tzortzis Rallis (Occupy Design UK) • Ken Garland • Peter Gregson • James Jarvis • Rian Hughes (Device Fonts) • Hjalti Karlsson (karlssonwilker) • Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer) • Eike König (HORT) • Henrik Kubel (A2/SW/HK) • Gerry Leonidas • Simon Manchipp (SomeOne) • Sean McBride (Typekit) • Grant McCracken • Kate Moross (Studio Moross) • Vaughan Oliver • Lucienne Roberts • Freda Sack (Foundry Types) • Mariana Santos & Mark McCormick (The Guardian) • Paula Scher (Pentagram) • Anna Gerber & Britt Iversen (Visual Editions) • Marius Watz

It might be time to raid the piggy bank and get inspired!
