Gemma O’Brien

    From Sydney to Berlin to Hobart

    FontShop has a blog, which I check almost regularly, to see what is happening in the world of type. It is also interesting to see what the German graphic design community is concerned about. TYPOBerlin, an annual conference dedicated to letters is organised by FS as well. I read about Gemma giving a talk in 2009 and wished Berlin wouldn’t be on the other end of the planet. Siebert raved on about her inspiring words and youtube screened her video over 250 000 times. Well even if I still would have lived in Germany at that time, I probably wouldn’t have been able to afford the ticket anyway. Discovering Gemmas website www.fortheloveoftype.com.au, it said she lives in Australia, much closer than I thought! What fantastic news. Well, AGDA Tasmania liked my idea of inviting her for a talk and here she comes – right to my door step! ahh…
