TypeCon Speakers

For the past few weeks, we’ve been busy locking in speakers, shining up the schedule, and tweaking the timing of our very first virtual conference. Here’s just a taste of what we have planned.

Taking place October 21st to 24th, TypeCon2021 kicks off with a jam-packed main program on Thursday and Friday. The Type & Design Education Forum moves to Saturday, bringing more exposure to the work educators in our community are doing, influencing the next generation of designers and typographers. Sunday will be filled with Type Crits, featuring the typographic elucidations of John Downer and Hannes Famira.
