On Thursday 9 July 2020, online: Marina Chaccur. Facilitator: Jean François Porchez. Free to watch online. No need to register to watch TPFriends now below. Marina Chaccur chats with TypeParis alumni via Zoom about letterpress, patterns, fleurons, old techniques who meets new technology, her cat and so on. 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!
