The third annual Typism Conference will be held on Australia’s Gold Coast on Saturday, September 30. There will be eight local and international speakers who are all amazing letterers, calligraphers, sign writers, typographers, designers and mural artists. We have announced all of them over the last nine weeks, but in case you missed a couple, here they all are again.

Eliza promises you’ll gain an insight into her long-time love affair with letters, the many struggles (and rewards) of self-employment, tips on how to find ‘your style’ and a touch of interpretive dance in her ‘variety hour’ performance.
