TYPO San Francisco
2014 Rhythm 

Mark your calendars for April 30-May 1, 2015 when TYPO San Francisco returns to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts!

This year’s theme “Focus”

Focus permeates the designer’s everyday world – from specializing in one specific area or discipline, concentrating on getting that client project done on deadline, or zooming in on the pixels of your typeface. Within the industry, shift in focus are constant. Does a designer choose to learn web, print, mobile or be a jack-of-all-trades? Does a graphic designer take on type design? Should a visual artist delve into UX? Do type foundries dedicate more attention to webfonts? By focusing on “Focus,” TYPO San Francisco will bring together a diverse slate of international and local speakers to explore this theme through a creative’s lens.

Focus your sights on San Francisco on April 30-May 1, 2015. With an emphasis on design, society, culture – with a little bit of kerning, the two-day conference adapts one of Europe’s most successful design events with a Bay Area twist.

Registration opens mid-October.
