Event Details

 San Francisco 2012 Connect

FontShop is proud to bring one of Europe’s premier design events to the Bay Area. TYPO San Francisco will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), April 5-6, 2012 centering around the theme Connect.


It's all about Connections

San Francisco is renowned as a creative hub. The unique blend of innovative thinking, design, software and technological development in the Bay Area has changed the way the world works. Well designed connections have improved and made our lives more fulfilling. Greater connections mean life can be more challenging, and that requires innovative design solutions. TYPO San Francisco brings together incredible speakers from American and European design communities to share and discuss what it means to connect.
