TYPO Comes to San Francisco in April 2012

We previously mentioned that TYPO, one of Europe’s most successful design conferences, will add an annual event in San Francisco. Well now we have dates!

TYPO San Francisco will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), April 5-6, 2012 centering around the theme Connect.

We connect with the world every day. Good design makes this fun and easy, bad design ruins the experience. Being over connected can be fulfilling or overwhelming. Disconnecting can be a relief or isolating. And all of this is changing constantly with technology. TYPO San Francisco Connect brings together incredible speakers from both European and American design communities to share their work and insights on what it means to connect.

“Within 16 years we’ve developed TYPO to a path-breaking voice in the field of communication and design. The positive reception of TYPO London in October 2011 was the proof, that the international graphic design community wants that summit at additional design strongholds,” said Jürgen Siebert, Chairman, FontShop Germany. “We are thrilled to come to San Francisco.”

The two-day conference will feature a diverse array of creative and inspiring speakers across multiple industries in the Novellus Theater at YBCA. Erik Spiekermann and Kali Nikitas will facilitate in the main hall. The event will also feature typographic workshops and screenings at YBCA.

Registration will open December 1, 2011. An early bird phase with discounted tickets will run through December 31. Regularly priced tickets will be available January 1 through February 28, with late registration beginning March 1 up until the conference.

In the spirit of TYPO Berlin, a limited number of student tickets will also be available at a reduced rate.

More information, including registration and sponsorship information, is forthcoming at www.typotalks.com/sanfrancisco or follow us on Twitter @TYPOSF.
