Ampersand – The Web Typography Conference

Ampersand brings together experts from all aspects of web typography, including branding and editorial designers, web developers, visual designers, browser makers, and type designers.

As web designers and developers, we want to create websites with expressive, engaging and readable typography that performs well across all devices.

With so many factors to take into account from typeface choice and layout through to page speed, responsive design and variable fonts, it’s hard to know how to keep up.

Over the course of a single day, Ampersand will give you the full picture of what typography can and should be on the web today. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, you’ll find masses to learn and take away.

All students & staff receive a 50% discount here: https://2018.ampersandconf.com/

Mayfest 2018

Mayfest is Bristol’s unique international festival of contemporary theatre, dedicated to presenting a broad range of unusual, playful and ambitious work from leading theatre makers from Bristol, the UK and beyond.

“A mix of work so tasty it makes you want to up sticks and move to Bristol permanently.” The Guardian

Mayfest is produced by MAYK, in partnership with arts organisations across Bristol. From pubs and clubs to community centres and libraries, from theatres and galleries to streets and woods; the city is a playground.

Through Mayfest we have built collaborative relationships with nearly every arts organisation in the city, from Bristol Old Vic to Tobacco Factory Theatres, from Arnolfini to the Cube, from Trinity to Circomedia.

Each festival we invite the most extraordinary theatre artists we can find into the city for an explosion of culture. Our programme emerges from conversations with artists and producers, from months travelling the world to find the best new theatre and performance, from collaborations with organisations locally and nationally.

Mayfest is MAYK’s gift to the people of Bristol – a feast of performance for a diverse, multi-cultural city – things we know you’ll love, things we hope you’ll love, things we know you’ll be challenged by, things we think you’ll never forget.

Mayfest’s Artistic Directors are Matthew Austin and Kate Yedigaroff.
