How its started?

Launched by the Typofonderie team in 2015, TypeParis is now an independent entity that operates according to its established objectives, managed collegially by the team of trainers, all highly talented professionals. TypeParis is structured in two poles: the teaching programme and the conferences.

Learning type design

The Summer programme is an intensive programme in English that takes in the heart of near Eiffel Tower in Paris. Our unique approach continues the long tradition of type design study that started in France back in the 1970’s. During the year, we organize workshops in Paris and sometimes elsewhere who cover type design, sign painting, lettering, use of software, etc.


Conferences have been an integral part since the launch of TypeParis in 2015, as evidenced by our Video channel. As the various communities need to listen to each other, to learn from the others, it’s why we organize conferences that will bring together graphic designers, art directors, typographers and type designers.
