About TYPO

TYPO Conferences are a huge success in Europe. TYPO Berlin has become Europe’s premier annual design conference featuring a veritable who’s-who from the elite of design with cultural commentary and social relevance presenting a design barometer of the rapidly changing creative arena of the last 17 years, and as you might expect, more than a little key knowledge of the world of typography. TYPO London premiered in London to rave reviews in October 2011.

About TYPO San Francisco Connect

San Francisco is a key location for design. Technology and software development have seamlessly entered the design process with creativity and innovation underpinning the way people are educated, conduct business and think about society. We all connect with the world every day. Good design makes this fun and easy, bad design ruins the experience. Being overly 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 brings together incredible speakers from both European and American design communities to share their work and insights on what it means to connect.
