ATypI 2020 All Over is the first virtual conference presented by the Association Typographique Internationale. Due to the global pandemic we have all been facing, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and safety of our typographic family, we made the decision to postpone our Paris conference until it’s safe for everyone to travel and attend large events. Even though we can’t be together in person this year, we’re looking forward to bringing our community together in a new and exciting way.
ATypI 2020 will bring together typeface designers, lettering artists, publishers, developers, educators, and other members of the global type, tech, and design communities. ATypI is an international network that spans design professions, company sizes, and geographic areas of activity. We’re going to take full advantage of the opportunity to offer exceptional programming, networking, and social events, and to hear from top experts and new voices from around the world. We couldn’t be more excited—a virtual conference will allow us to be more inclusive and accessible than ever before. Proposals to present in languages other than English are welcome and encouraged!
ATypI conferences are known for taking place in stimulating environments where participants will meet like-minded professionals and students, make connections across industries, and develop extensive networks of learning, enterprise, and mentorship. This year’s big event is no exception! We’re creating a new kind of gathering that bridges cultures, generations, and time zones at the intersection of business and friendship.
It is in this spirit of comprehension, optimism, and inclusion that we invite designers, typographers, type designers, and type enthusiasts worldwide to join us the last week of October for ATypI 2020 All Over.
