Face Forward 2015

Author:

Face Forward ist eine internationale Typografie-Konferenz, die einen Blick auf Typografie und Gestaltung in der Praxis wirft und Verbindungen zwischen Forschung, Handwerk, Theorie und Praxis überprüft. Die erste Veranstaltung dieser Art ist in Dublin und soll in jährlichem Turnus stattfinden.

Aus dem Pressetext: This conference aims to provoke informed, rigorous and critical debate on aspects of typographic research and practice that relate to current discourse and contexts.

In the field of visual communication and typographic practice, a great deal of epistemological uncertainty still exists. As a consequence, concrete theoretical or methodological positions around which the discipline could cohere have yet to emerge—a situation this conference seeks to address.

The conference will provide a forum for research into typographic production, representation, dissemination and use. It encourages interdisciplinary enquiry; thus we welcome papers dealing with typography in all its forms, material and immaterial. We encourage submissions that consider typography in as broad a sense as possible, that celebrate the vitality and range of typography and which seek to expand definitions of both typographic object and practice.
