The comprehensive programme runs 5 days a week for 5 weeks. The majority of sessions will be provided by two instructors together. With two sessions a day, instructors will deliver 340 hours of instruction during the 5 weeks. During this time several visits have been arranged to see notable french institutions and discover the immense and fascinating history of type, including the collections at Bibliothèque NationaleBibliothèque MazarineBibliothèque de l’ArsenalMusée de l’Imprimerie and Musée Gallo Romain in Lyon, etc. 

Each Tuesday in Paris we organize the #tptalks18 (see last year #tptalks17). A series of free talks open to the public and streamed live to the world. The amazing evenings involve two speakers and one facilitator. A tote-bag full of typographic goodies is given to all attendees! The evenings run late with conversation, food and drink. In 2017, the weekly international guests spoke as many others: Olivier AlexanianThibault CaizerguesAgnès DahanStéphane ElbazFrançois MorelSylvia Tournerie.


The programme is in English and covers the learning of know-how in typeface design and calligraphy techniques, type history, and modern software practices. Attendees will gain knowledge through references and perspectives to help understand the key structure of letterforms. When in 2015, it was exceptionnal to have a large typeface family finished on week 5, because of the personal abilities of some specific attendees, in 2017, 80% of the group have designed more than just one style: weight variations, italic who require a fully new design. As it show that a constant redesign of the programme have a clear impact on the results of any attendees what ever their level when they start the 5 weeks. You will leave the programme with the specialized skills to design professional high quality digital typefaces, lettering and logotypes.

The #typeparis18 programme will take place between 11 June 2018 and 13 July 2018. Your daily presence is required for the validation of the programme certificate. The programme is limited to 15 participants. More details on FAQ.
