Week #5 The final week!

2017 typeparis17 weekly-5

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
