Speakers, 2015

Right now in 2015, the limits of the city are being pushed beyond the circular road surrounding Paris: the big challenge of the 21th century. This is where Laurence Madrelle likes to spend her design time. Laurence designs exclusively for the public domain in France: among others, the subjects range from culture, heritage, history, memory, education, health to architecture and urbanism…
The studio she created in 1987, LM communiquer, designs visual identities for institutions, communication and sign systems for urban development projects in order to give a better reading of the city to the citizen.

Lucas de Groot

Critics, Speakers, 2015

Dutch type designer Luc(as) de Groot is best-known for his superfamily Thesis: TheSans, TheSerif, TheMix, TheAntiqua, with monospaced and even Arabic variants. As a devoted type technician and hinting lover, he invented the Anisotropic Topology-Dependent Theory of Interpolation. He runs his type foundry LucasFonts in Berlin, teaches and gives lectures around the world.
Designers across the planet love Lucas’ fonts offer; they are attracted by their functionality and friendly appearance. Some also appreciate his quest for extremes that lead Luc(as) to the narrowest, thinnest, wittiest and fattest typefaces around.
