Festival Topics

Two weeks Petersburg will become
in the center of the world type design

In 2008 in St. Petersburg was held an international conference ATypI for 300 years of Cyrillic. That was a great event with numerous international guests, lectures and exhibitions of worldwide signi cance.

This conference has become an impact for developing design society in our city and country, but since that day and almost for 10 years already there happened not a single international festival dedicated to graphic design although we see an explosion of graphic designers society in the city and increasing interest to the profession, type and typo- graphics.

The appearance of annual international festival in Petersburg has been the matter of time and here it comes. The festival will join the professional Russian and international society in Petersburg and will become the breeding ground for expansion of the type culture worldwide.
