Typism – Inspiration Conference

EVENTS / MAY. 01, 2013

Get your diary ready! The brand new conference for typography fanatics and admirers is coming to the Gold Coast this September. Introducing Typism.

Typism Founder, Dominique Falla, is an outstanding creative in her own right. Her tactile typography artworks frequent the interwebs AND her reputation is growing internationally. It’s exciting to have our very own full-day typography conference in Queensland and Dominique’s vision for this event has made this happen.

What’s it all about?

“Typography can be viewed as a strange obsession, because not everyone understands how wonderful a well-drawn ampersand really is, or the work that goes into designing the perfect typeface,” explains Dominique, but as they say in the video: “Typism understands.”

Typism is a one-day conference featuring seven Australian speakers, including Gemma O’Brien, who recently had her typographic artwork showcased in every Woolworth’s store
over Christmas as part of the ‘Fresh Christmas’ campaign. The beautiful logo was created by speaker and upcoming star, Aurelie Maron.
