Variable Font Dilemmas
Variable Font Dilemmas With the variable font format gaining on importance, the traditional understanding of static styles and buying them perpetually is making less and less sense. Dinamo’s lecture at Elisava is going to be a reflection on the current state of the type design field and a proposal for a new licensing model.
Dinamo is a Swiss type design agency offering retail and bespoke typefaces, software, research and consultancy. Team members of Dinamo have been appointed to educational institutions internationally, awarded with a Swiss Design Award by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture or are members of the AGI, Alliance Graphique Internationale.

Mark van Wageningen is the founder of Novo Typo, a (typo)graphic design studio and font foundry in Amsterdam. In January 2015, Mark started the Typewood project. Typewood is a research project about designing, deconstructing, and transforming multicolored digital typefaces into wooden type for letterpress. Ziza, a corresponding project with lead type, followed in 2016. Both projects show the future of multicolored typeface design through the revitalization and deconstruction of typographic traditions.
Type and Color This workshop invites you to reconsider this traditional black and white approach in typographic design. ‘Less-Is-More’ modernism has become a hollow phrase which illustrates a conservative approach to typographic design. This workshop will start with deconstructing the basic shapes of a character and will end with the transformation from a static to a dynamic form. However, everything we will make will be in Full Color. Color is the new Bold!

It’s important for us to share knowledge in a structure of values with which we identify ourselves with.
Anthony Burrill + Eugeni Bach
Interview by Francisca Torres
In May 2019, the first summer pavilion was built on the terrace of Elisava's third floor. It was the result of the collaboration between the master's degree in ephemeral architecture and temporal spaces (MEATS) and the master's degree in graphic design (MGD) carried out during the five-day workshop under the name '3km', led by Anthony Burrill and Eugeni Bach.
I don’t usually tweet, I’m more of an instagram kind of person, but I did this tweet “People together make things happen”. And I think that was the spirit really. I got quite emotional…
