Every year, 400+ designers gather for TypeCon, the nation’s biggest and best conference on typography and type design. In 2019, TypeCon returned to Minneapolis, leading designer Mark Caneso to design the conference’s “Nice” branding.
Some years, the conference’s brand designer will create a bunch of stage animations. This year, it wasn’t a part of the deal, and with only a week before the conference, the organizers asked me to deliver.
I worked closely with Mark to create a series of fun, light, and “nice” animations. They were used on all the screens—main stage and placemaking—during TypeCon.
