Discover the identity-building impact of scripts, typefaces, and typography with GRANSHAN, the world’s only volunteer-run organisation showcasing high-quality global design diversity through competitions, conferences and exhibitions. 

GRANSHAN is the hub for global visual identity—focused exclusively on scripts beyond Latin. We celebrate typefaces and typography, design and communication that enable communities to develop culture and enterprises in a balance between local, regional, and global.

Just to let you know—These days we are working intensively on the website, which has been technically relaunched in large parts. There may be small failures and especially links to incorrectly connected subpages from time to time. In addition, there are still a few pages with dummy texts ... We apologise for this – and ask for your patience.

»GRANSHAN thrives on the enthusiasm of the global type design and typography community. Every GRANSHAN programme is the joint effort of people and companies who are committed to it. The offerings are therefore also an expression of the design industry's ability to show solidarity. «
~ Boris Kochan, President GRANSHAN Foundation e.V.
