TypeParis is an intensive programme that takes place from 10 June to 13 July 2019 in the heart of Bastille area in Paris. With two sessions a day, each led by a tandem of two instructors, you will receive 340 hours of instruction over the course of five weeks. More details on FAQ. During this period, several visits have been arranged to see notable french institutions and discover the immense and fascinating history of type, including the collections at Bibliothèque Nationale, Bibliothèque Mazarine, Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, Musée de l’Imprimerie and Musée Gallo Romain in Lyon, etc.

Each Thursday in Paris we will organize the #tptalks19 at Le Tank. Our free talks are open to the public and streamed live to the world. In 2018, we received Rejane Dal Bello, Hansje van Halem, Claudia Klat, Spin Studio, Morag Myerscough, Thomas Petitjean, Spassky Fischer as well all the #typeparis18 weekly international guests critics. The amazing evenings involve two speakers and one facilitator. A tote-bag full of typographic goodies is given to all attendees! The evenings run late with conversation, food and drink.

The programme is in English and covers the learning of know-how in typeface design and calligraphy techniques, type history, and modern software practices. Attendees will gain knowledge through references and perspectives to help understand the key structure of letterforms. Like any creative discipline, type design is highly subjective, and whilst there are important principles that we teach in detail that should be followed, there is a lot of room for one’s own personal taste.
