TypeCon is the annual event of the non-profit Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA).
TypeCon is held in a different host city each year. SOTA partners with local and international organizations to produce a low-cost event featuring some of the brightest names in type, design, and the related disciplines. TypeCon offers a warm and inviting atmosphere where students and novices can mingle comfortably with seasoned professionals.
TypeCon allows type lovers from all walks of life to get together — to listen, to learn, to teach, to network, and to take renewed inspiration into their own work.
TypeCon has been held in North American cities to date, but draws a growing number of speakers, exhibitors, and attendees from outside North America.
The growing flickr TypeCon pool documents not only the event but local venue signage and other lettering as well.
