About TYPO Conferences
TYPO Conferences are a huge success in Europe. TYPO Berlin has become Europe’s premier annual three-day design conference featuring a veritable who’s-who from the elite of design with cultural commentary and social relevance presenting a design barometer of the rapidly changing creative arena of the last 17 years, and as you might expect, more than a little key knowledge of the world of typography. TYPO London premiered to rave reviews in October 2011.
About TYPO San Francisco Connect
San Francisco is a key location for design. Technology and software development have seamlessly entered the design process with creativity and innovation underpinning the way people are educated, conduct business and think about society. We all connect with the world every day. Good design makes this fun and easy, bad design ruins the experience. Being over connected can be fulfilling or overwhelming. Disconnecting can be a relief or isolating. And all of this is changing constantly with technology. TYPO San Francisco Connect brings together incredible speakers from both European and American design communities to share their work and insights on what it means to connect.
Conference sponsors include FontShop International and Communication Arts. More information on sponsorship is available at typotalks.com/sanfrancisco.
