• UI/UX & Type

• Type Design & Society

The first session to the theme of UI/UX & Type will be held online on the 20th November, starting 16:30 CET.

»Join the conversation«

TypeTech MeetUp has been created to fill a gap: it needed a place where font engineers and designers, web designers and developers, industry experts and tech & business professionals can exchange ideas on technical topics and develop a better designed future together.
The TypeTech MeetUp is a forum to jointly develop, discuss and document the current state of font technology as well as create a platform for the exchange of best practices, to advance the state of the art and to promote the integration of font technologies into the future of digital communication.
