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.
To become a partner of TypeParis is both to participate in enriching the programme, but it is also to make these conferences richer, to allow a better reception.
It is of course to guarantee you a good visibility, before, during and after the conferences and summer programme and workshops. Because our target is very studied to allow you to reach those who have a particular interest for typography, those, who will be the ambassadors of your brand.

Learning type design
The Summer programme is an intensive course 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.
Attendees will leave the programme with the specialized skills to design professional high quality digital typefaces, lettering and logotypes. Since 2015, the attendees came from all over the world, 31 countries represented to date.
TypeParis is built around a team of renowned professionals and experienced instructors: Jean François Porchez, Mathieu Réguer, Marc Rouault, Gina Serret, Julie Soudanne, Malou Verlomme. Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer and Georg Seifer from Glyphs handle special sessions with the attendees. Our weekly international guest critics for #typeparis23 will be announced soon. They will each spend a day with the attendees and, in the evening, speak about their work.
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, for 2023 we are preparing a new series of conferences (visit the Talks22 page) that will bring together graphic designers, art directors, typographers and type designers.
On the side of type design, designing a good typeface is one thing, but it’s a tiny aspect of the whole picture. The big deal is designing with type. In order to draw letters in a mindful way, we must all understand what type is for, how graphic designers, art directors use it, how they work with it, how they transform it, how they break it and, most importantly, how they communicate with it.
As for designers, they know that typography plays a central role in their daily work. That knowing more about existing as well as new typefaces, the way they are lovingly created, will allow them to better appreciate them with a fresh eye. These conferences are organized for this purpose. We think it is important to create more platforms to let various universes communicate about their love of typography in their everyday practise. Our international speakers for #typeparis23 will be announced later.
