On Thursday 25 June 2020, online: Jeremy Tankard. Facilitator: Jean François Porchez. Free to watch online. No need to register to watch TPFriends now below. Jeremy Tankard chats with TypeParis alumni via Zoom about the texture and rhythm of typefaces as well various aspects of typeface design. Please excuse in advance the quality of the video and the random aspect of the discussions.
In 2020, we organize TPFriends discussions with graphic designers, typographers, type designers. For each guest, it is an exchange. He presents a project of his choice, we talk about it, then the exchange continues around a series of questions imagined by the TypeParis alumnis who discuss with the guest. As its name suggests, TPFriends is held in an informal atmosphere, more akin to a discussion among friends than a public presentation. The format is different from our traditional TPTalks that take place at the Tank in Paris and are webcast.
Please use them for any of your social networks!
