Type is Everywhere!
On the Streets, and in the Wild.

The Type Directors Club (TDC) is pleased to present the 2022 Edition of Type Drives Culture, an international conference that will explore the ways in which people use typography to form and transform creative communities.

In line with our 75th anniversary, this year's conference theme is
Type Drives Culture: The Next 75 Years.

Save the Date & Join us virtually on Friday, March 4 and Saturday, March 5, 2021

There will be two half-days of guided type tours by city, illuminating presentations and roundtable discussions spanning design disciplines across the planet, featuring speakers from Austria to Zimbabwe. The conference will highlight how designers use typography to pursue a common purpose, establish intergenerational connections, spark and sustain change. How do these stories inspire us in navigating our world, our profession and make what we do relevant to our times?
