Calling mad types!
If you can’t make it to Madrid this year, you can still be part of the Typo_Mad action via the Typo_Mad Expo.
The theme for this year is “the experimental and the amateur”, with the expo taking form in two parts – the curated exhibition showcase at Central de Diseño in Matadero Madrid as well as a virtual online gallery.
The exposition will accept typographic pieces that speak to the theme through applications such as: typeface design (calligraphy, dingbats, lettering), identity design, digital formats (opening titles, websites, TV spots, on-line works, animations, interactive project), emerging projects and yet-to-be published degree final projects.
The deadline for submissions is tomorrow, September 20, so get in quick!
