ATypI afters versus TypeCon afters?

So ATypI nights are less crazy good than TypeCon nights? really? The main difference between these drunky nights is that the ones during ATypI, people still able to start new business. Sabon Next project started during that night. ehehe…

Around 2 am this night in Leipzig (even Hermann Zapf was present during this party), discussing with Bernhard Hofmacher from Linotype, I told him that their Platinum collection — started not long ago — offered only sanserifs from living designers (Adrian Frutiger…). Suggesting to them that great serif typefaces can be added to this collection too. Then Bruno Steinert came to join the discussion and he asked for names of typefaces I can think about: Sabon I replied, and explained why…
Then the story of Sabon next started this night.
