TypeParis has a funny way of bending time, making it feel as though 5 days have passed, instead of 5 weeks. So strange to think that it’s all over for another year! This week was intense and super fun all at the same time. The last #tptalks17 was a roaring success, and presentation day on… Read more

They are about to embark on the home stretch! We didn’t have any museum visits for Week #4, as we enjoyed Bastille Day, but as usual, we had… Read more

I was blown away by Albert-Jan’s fascinating talk about legibility on Tuesday night at #tptalks17. His academic and research-based approach to type design is refreshing, and you feel excited about the possibilities of our industry when listening to him. Enjoy hearing more from Albert-Jan in this interview.

It was an honour and a pleasure to welcome Mário into the classroom on Tuesday. He is a super nice guy, friendly, funny and critiqued the attendees’ work honestly and insightfully. Mário is a accomplished type designer, and his work has strong ties to historical models, with his own interpretation over the top, which has made for a body of work with depth and integrity.

Today we chat with François Morel, a talented graphic designer and sign painter who cut his teeth on illegal graffiti in the 90’s. This guy has a really interesting history, and a huge body of work. We had the great pleasure of hearing him speak at TypeTalks this week, and it was a treat to hear about his life and work. Now let’s hear a little more…
