Beyond Tellerrand is a conference about creative web design and development founded in 2010 by Marc Thiele. Beyond Tellerrand runs in Düsseldorf in May and in Berlin in November each year, selling out with 500 attendees each time. In 2018, Munich was added to the list of shows as well.
The name beyond tellerrand expresses the aim that everybody involved wants look a bit further, look beyond the edge. It also reflects the global perspective of the event. The expression is a mix of the English word beyond and the German phrase “über den Tellerrand schauen,” which means “to think outside the box”.
The typeface used for the most recent events is Pulpo (Floodfonts, 2019). On the conference badges, it’s used in bold and italic styles. The weekdays are set in caps from a display cut of Walbaum (Monotype, 2018).
