TYPO London: Early Bird tickets + freebies

TYPO London is a 2-day event which gives students and creative pros the chance to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry talk about their ideas, inspiration and solutions to the issues we all face as designers today.

This year's event - the second to be held in London - is all about design as a social act "whether it's working for a global brand or designing a new eco-friendly typeface," say the organisers. "Social design puts social experiences at the core."

So far over 30 speakers have been announced, including:

  • Vaughan Oliver - widely seen as the epitome of 'graphic designer as artist' for his work with record label 4AD.
  • Tony Chambers - editor-in-chief of Wallpaper.
  • Kate Moross - graphic artist, art director and filmmaker who has worked with Simian Mobile Disco, Jessie Ware and L-Vis 1990 as well as Cadbury, Glastonbury and Nike.
  • Bibliotheque - independent studio headed up by Tim Beard, Jonathon Jeffrey and Mason Wells, famous for typographic rigour.
  • Patrick Cox - former executive creative director of Wolff Olins and designer of the controversial logo and brand design for the London 2012 Olympics.
  • A Practice For Everyday Life - independent graphic design studio created by Kirsty Carter and Emma Thomas. Read the Computer Arts profile
