Typographics is a design festival for people who use type. The event series takes place June 12–22, 2017, and is devoted to contemporary typography, with talks, workshops, and tours focusing on where typography is today and where its future may lie. It will be held at The Cooper Union in New York City.
Most of the Typographics festival will take place at The Cooper Union, in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
Founded as a tuition-free college by philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, the school is the alma mater of many noteworthy typographers and lettering artists including Herb Lubalin, Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast, and Lou Dorfsman. Cooper is home of the Type@Cooper typeface design program as well as the Herb Lubalin Study Center, an archive of modern graphic design.
