Not sure whether you should get yourself a ticket for TYPO London? This is why you should:
1. New thinking

Learn new ways of thinking and working from a mix of international speakers as they discuss current trends and future developments.
TYPO London allows you to derive inspiration from key people working in different areas of creativity, media and design. Catch opinions, processes and ideas that will re-shape the way you think, work and develop as a creative practitioner or student.

4. Future gazing
TYPO London is an opportunity to see what is likely to happen next. A range of speakers of all ages, and from different disciplines, provide a glimpse into the future – a future about which we can be certain of only one thing: it will be characterized by constant change.
TYPO London brings a host of international speakers to London. Where better to see the work, and hear the thoughts of a group of inspirational practitioners and thinkers, than in the one of the great design capitals of the world.

7. Get social
TYPO London is a place to meet speakers, delegates and friends – and to make new ones.

TYPO has always also been a kind of job and contact exchange, and a meeting point for emerging talent to mix with established practitioners of all kinds.
