Typographics is a design festival for people who use type. The event series takes place June 12–22, 2017, and is devoted to contemp­orary typo­graphy, with talks, work­shops, and tours focusing on where typo­graphy is today and where its future may lie. It will be held at The Cooper Union in New York City.

The highlight of Typographics is a two-day conference centered on the contemporary use of type. Registration is open to the public.

Workshops & Tours: June 12–22

Workshops and tours are being scheduled around the conference, covering everything from hand lettering to responsive typography.

The TypeLab at Typographics 2017 will host a series of technical but informal hands-on work­shops, demos, inter­views, and experiments.
