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!permalink

Our feet have just about touched the ground since the wonderful whirlwind that was TYPO Berlin 2013 last week. So, we thought we’d share some snippets and snapshots.
Taking place over three days and reaching it's eighteenth year running, this year’s TYPO Berlin was one of the biggest yet with design superstars such as Jessica Walsh, Neville Brody, Albert-Jan Pool and Ken Garland.
This year’s conference also played host to the first ever Type Review that took place on Friday 17 May. Members of our official TypeBoard, Erik Spiekermann, Stephen Coles, Erik van Blokland, Andreas Frohloff, Jürgen Siebert and Ivo Gabrowitsch were let loose on stage to critique, commend and appraise typefaces in public.
We were also delighted to meet up with a number of our FontFont designers who were at TYPO Berlin.
The quality of the speakers was fantastic and highlights included Simon Manchipp and Neville Brody. There was a number of workshops to take part in, including Erik Spiekermann’s print workshop and the Calligraphy and Lettering Workshop by our Head of Type, Andreas Frohloff.
