We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd Wrocław Type Forum, an international type design & typography conference!

Wrocław Type Forum concerns contemporary typography and type design. We want to connect academic reflection with design activity. Raised topics of historical motifs and modern design will encourage us to think about future.

During Wrocław Type Forum you will have the opportunity to meet new inspiring people, discuss ideas and share your knowledge. As the main topic of the conference suggests, our aim is to consider the word ‘letter’ from different points of view.

The programme includes two days of lectures by: Riccardo Olocco, Dan Reynolds, Victoria i Vitalina Lopukhiny, Péter Simon, Tomasz Bierkowski, Maciej Majchrzak, Katarzyna Roj, Nikola Djurek and Viktoriya Grabowska. Additionally, there will be a discussion with Adam Twardoch moderated by Rene Wawrzkiewicz (PGDAwards).

The main language of the conference is English.

The registration is obligatory. The conference fee is 150 PLN (or 37 EUR) and 100 PLN (25 EUR) for students (you will have to present a document during the registration in Wrocław).

For more information and to register please e-mail: [email protected].
