The 5 Typography Meeting (5ET), took place in Barcelos, on 28 and 29 November 2014. Organized by the Department of Design School of Technology (EST) at the Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave (IPCA).
With the general theme of “Ubiquitous”, aimed to continue to stimulate the dissemination, reflection and discussion of research and typographic development at national and international level.
The typographica.org elected their favorite typefaces of 2014. In this list we find three Portuguese typefaces: “Breve” from DSType, “Signo” and “Litania” from Rui Abreu.
In recent months we have been working on the long editing phase that is taking more time than originally anticipated due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Editing a documentary is a time consuming process and requires from us the utmost care, consideration and dedication. We are dealing with many hours of interviews and many archival footage collected during the previous phase. We intend to be able to complete this phase as quickly as possible.
To all who follow us, we apologize for the lack of news stay tuned because there will be news soon.
