Typographics – About


The Typographics festival is organized and run by a small group of type fans.

The 11-day festival is a forum for presentations about graphic design, web design, publication design, book design, type design, packaging, branding, corporate identity, advertising, motion graphics, and more. Importantly, Typographics focuses on new frontiers in digital typography. The international line-up of speakers includes emerging and established designers, attracting a vital and intelligent community of attendees. In the week before and the week after the main conference, Type@Cooper offers workshops and tours, open to the public, to educate and entertain participants.
