Formation: The Changing Faces of Typography


The Type Directors Club celebrates the undeniable significance of typography around the world. We are a global community of experts and enthusiasts who are united by the shared belief that type drives culture. And culture drives type.

Under the motto Formation, the Type Drives Culture 2020 conference tackles the role of design in our systems-based world.

Organized by the Type Directors Club with support from the Communication Design programs at Parsons School of Design at The New School, this year’s Type Drives Culture conference convenes on March 27, 2020 to bring together leading designers, curators, writers, and thinkers to explore the present and possible futures of design.


Conference highlights include:

  • Petr van Blokland, software author and typeface designer
  • Tracy Ma, Visual Editor at The New York Times Styles desk
  • Saki Mafundikwa, the founder of Zimbabwe’s first graphic design program, ZIVA, and the author of Afrikan Alphabets
