Fontstand International Typography Conference

May 15–16, 2020
Dublin, Ireland

On May 15 and 16, 2020, Fontstand in a collaboration with the Technological University Dublin brings its third international typography conference to Dublin, the capital of Ireland, and its largest city, which can trace its origin back more than 1,000 years.

TU Dublin School of Creative Arts and Typography Ireland are delighted to welcome Fontstand to Dublin. This collaboration builds on the School's longstanding record and commitment to research in typography, which has included hosting the ATypI annual conference in 2010 and Face Forward International Typography Conference, 2015.

Join the world-class type designers and typographers from around the globe for a packed day of presentations and discussions. This is a two-way conference: not only a forum that facilitates you learning from the speakers, but also one in which the speakers hope to learn about your experience with using or licensing type, the challenges you face, and ideas you may have.
