The TYPISM conference is only one week away
If you love letterforms, calligraphy, hand lettering, custom typography and typeface design, and will be on the Gold Coast next week, the TYPISM conference is for you.
Typism is a one-day conference on the Gold Coast featuring seven Australian speakers, including: Gemma O’Brien, who recently had her typographic artwork showcased in every Woolworth’s store over Christmas as part of the ‘Fresh Christmas’ campaign, the Australian Type Foundry’s Wayne Thompson, fresh from his sellout “Type by Hand” tour and Melbourne’s vector wunderkind Bobby Haiqalsyah. Other speakers include: the tactile typographer Dominique Falla, Matt Vergotis, Nicole Phillips and Aurelie Maron.
Typism will be held at the BCC cinemas in Pacific Fair on the Gold Coast, Wednesday September 4th, and is open to the general public.
Tickets are $70 for students and $90 general admission, available from Try Booking.
There will also be a book of some of the best typography from around the world, published in conjunction with the conference.
