ATypI 2021 AllOver: the massive virtual celebration of typography is on air
Time to celebrate the universal power of the letterform with ATypI 2021 AllOver.
Kicking off today through the 4th of December, ATypI's virtual event aims to celebrate typography and the people who create featuring speakers from around the world.
"As we celebrate and showcase our vibrant international community ATypI All Over returns with an incredible group of speakers from around the world offering a snapshot of what’s happening now in type and design" notes Association Typographique Internationale.
"This online gathering will also examine world scripts from historical perspectives while previewing the future of typographic innovation."
From Toshi Omagari and his talk about designing a modern Ruqah Arabic typeface inspired by the vintage Egyptian film posters through learning about mid-century Ivorian script with Adam Yeo, Slovene architecture and type design with Alija Herlah, Arabic highway signage with Dr. Shaima Elbardawil, vernacular type from El Salvador with Tatiana López, Zimbabwe type and protest with Baynham Goredema, and South America’s indigenous languages with Juan Casco the event's first day will end with a panel on CJK and a workshop in Hangul Type.
Founded in 1957 by Charles Peignot (from the French type foundry Deberny & Peignot), ATypI or Association Typographique Internationale aka the International Typography Association is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to typography and type design.
The primary activity of the association is an annual fall conference, held in a different global city each year.
With type designers, teachers, typographers, graphic and editorial designers, journalists, advertisers, developers, the typographic community is an ever-expanding universe of creativity and this global virtual event aims to reflect the many aspects of the art of the lettetrform.
Travelling the world through type is a splendid adventure.
