TypeCon2014: Call for Programming

February 12, 2014 / By aigaeducators

The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is now accepting programming proposals for its sixteenth annual conference. TypeCon2014 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington, July 30th to August 3rd in Washington, DC — once again offering an affordable program designed for makers, users, and enthusiasts of type from all walks of life.

We are currently reviewing proposals for contemporary and historical presentations and panel discussions, focused hands-on workshops in both the digital and non-digital realms, and a variety of programming for the Type & Design Education Forum and other special events.

Topics for presentations at TypeCon cover a broad range of interests, including: typography; type design; font production; graphic design; digital media; printing history; calligraphy and hand lettering; the book arts; advertising; type in motion; literacy; type sales and marketing; legal issues; type and design education; and other related areas.

Deadline for proposals: Saturday, March 15th, 2014
