TYPE DRIVES CULTURE
The theme for 2019 was “Type: More _____ Than Ever”, an interactive concept that invites new voices to fill in the blank about the present and future of type.
Like many industries, typography and type design have long suffered from a lack of diversity and inclusion. But the doors are beginning to widen, revealing a pathway for new ideas, perspectives, and leaders.
With this year’s line up we’re pushing open those doors to feature as many diverse designers, global scripts, and regions as possible.
Watch all twelve videos to see two of the most influential typeface designers of the 21st century, Fiona Ross and Kris Holmes, along with a new generation of designers and thinkers who are making type more accessible, more global, and more exciting than ever before.
