Programme & speakers

On the edge

This is type on the northern edge of Europe and the edge of the Baltic Sea; type of the Nordic and Baltic cultures and languages. This is type on the forward edge of technology: type on television screens; type embedded in telephones; type circling around the world. This is type on the edge of a global culture: type as a medium of change and also of preservation; type as a carrier of cultures. And this is type on the edge of design: type as form and content; type as an idea, and type as an activity.
