Face Forward: International typography conference

Posted: 1 April, 2015

Face Forward is an international peer-reviewed conference focused on typography that seeks to examine design and typographic practice, and to make explicit existing connections between craft, research, theory, history, criticism and pedagogy.

This conference aims to provoke informed, rigorous and critical debate on aspects of typographic research and practice that relate to current discourse and contexts. It is the inaugural event in what will become an annual international conference. This year's conference is supported by ID2015 Year of Irish Design and the Dublin Institute of Technology.  It will take place on the DIT campus at Grangegorman on 11/12 December 2015.

Submissions that consider typography in as broad a sense as possible, that celebrate the vitality and range of typography and which seek to expand definitions of both typographic object and practice are invited. View more details
