Hanyi’s Typography Forum:
Beauty of Type & Layout

Typography is always a big issue that all graphic designers have to face in their career lives.

How to select and arrange the beautiful visual elements out of language and then express human’s creative thoughts in design works? Visual designers have never stopped their exploration for the answer.

During Beijing Design Week 2016, HanyiFont, the pioneering Chinese Type Foundry, will hold a forum around the topic of type and text layout design, along with guests from this professional field. Lectures would cover the instruction and application of classic Grid Systems theory from International Typographic Style, and other related design details on typography.

The guests would also be glad to share their design works and creative thoughts. All the designers and typography lovers are welcome to join the event and open discussion.
