TYPO San Francisco – International Design Talks


We are currently in the final week of 2011. There were many exciting events this year, but there will be more not less exciting events coming up next year. As the end of the year is approaching, I just wanted to remind you of the TYPO San Francisco taking place on 5th/6th April at the Yerba Buena Center of Arts. It will be all about the theme ‘Connect’. The host: “We connect with the world every day. Good design makes this fun and easy, bad design ruins the experience. Being over connected can be fulfilling or overwhelming. Disconnecting can be a relief or isolating. And all of this is changing constantly with technology. TYPO San Francisco brings together incredible speakers from both European and American design communities to share their work and insights on what it means to connect.” An event, you should definitely not miss. Tickets will be $400 in December an starting January $500.
