If you are attending Adobe MAX in two weeks, you will be able to catch a good number of type- and lettering-centered presentations. One of them is The Secret Language of Movie Posters, the latest incarnation of my ScreenFonts talk, live on stage on Thursday, November 3 at 4:15PM. So if you are at Adobe MAX, drop by to say hello and stay for the show.

This year, Adobe MAX takes place at the San Diego Convention Center from November 2 to 4, 2016, with a preconference from October 31 to November 1. The programme may seem overwhelming, so here are the sessions, hands-on-labs, and workshops about typography and lettering in one handy list.
