I didn't go to Build this year. Mainly because I'm an idiot and can't plan ahead. According to reports, it was the best one so far and rumour has it Wilson Minor stole the show. Us non-attendidiots will have to wait for the video releases to see just how good he was. I got to a couple of peripheral events: the Film night was good (as I've already mentioned) and so was Spiekermann who talked about type and swore. He's always good.
After Spiekermann, it was the First Ever Build Conference Beer Festival, complete with locally brewed guest beers and mats beautifully printed by top letterpressers Typoretum. For those that don't know, the Eff Eye ligature is the logo/motif of Build organiser Andygoodonpaperandeverything's company Fiction.
