Reserve Tickets

The Type Directors Club celebrates the undeniable significance of typography around the world. We are a global community of experts and enthusiasts who are united by the shared belief that type drives culture. And culture drives type.

The theme of this year’s Type Drives Culture Conference is Type: More ______ Than Ever. Our interactive theme prompts presenters and conference attendees to fill in the blank about the present and future of type.

Type is more global than ever, more accessible than ever, and more exciting than ever. This one-day conference brings together designers and thinkers to share their diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and opinions through provocative talks and panel discussions.

We’re thrilled to welcome our keynote speaker type designer, educator, and TDC Medalist Fiona Ross along with award-winning designers E Roon Kang, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Wael Morcos, and Ksenya Samarskaya. Stay tuned for more speakers and presenters to be announced!

Among the highlights of the program will be a live-taping of Debbie Millman’s popular podcast Design Matters, and a panel discussion with Adobe Fonts, Google Fonts, and Monotype moderated by Juliette Cezzar.

Tickets include a two-hour reception with the speakers.

Come help us fill in the blank on March 1st.
