Presentation

The “Typography Meeting” is an annual international scientific event based in Portugal that gathers researchers, practitioners, pedagogues, students and partners. It includes conferences by keynote speakers, communications of papers selected through double-blind peer-review process, workshops and exhibitions.

Our goal is to bring together leading individuals and projects in the Typographic panorama in order to: disseminate high level research and technical knowledge; foster learning, inspiration and critical thinking; and contribute to the discussion and the development of ideas in Typography.

The 8th edition of the “Typography Meeting” will be held in Faro, Portugal, 3-4 November 2017, organized by the School of Education and Communication of the University of Algarve. This year’s edition theme is “Multicultural”, to stimulate what we believe to be relevant in today’s challenging international landscape: to create spaces and discourses of convergence, in opposition to cultural separation; to promote and acclaim cultural connections and cherish different and common heritage, regardless of nationality, language or religion.
