ATypI 2017

ATypI 2017 was held in Montreal, Canada, from September 12-16, 2017. The main organizer was Alessandro Colizzi, closely assisted by Alexandre Saumier-Demers. The theme was Atypique. Introduction to the team.

The conference blurb: Join the global typographic community in Montréal, Quebec, Canada, September 12-16, 2017. ATypI is celebrating sixty years of typographic education and camaraderie this year. As an organization founded by Charles Peignot of the famed Deberny & Peignot foundry in Paris, it's fitting that we commemorate this milestone in a grand French-speaking capital. The theme of ATypI's 2017 conference is Atypique. Montréal is known for many things: for its blend of new and old; for its bilingualism and pluralistic society. Montréal is a city of dualities: East Side and West Side, English- and French-speaking, the old city and the new, European sophistication and American casual. It's a laid-back city enjoying the benefits of a low-inequality society. It is an atypical city compared to the rest of Canada and the United States. In a broader context, Atypique means something more daring; something that doesn't quite follow convention; something a little bit rebellious and edgy. Atypique holds a mirror to history and understands tradition, but dares to be different. In typographical terms, Atypique hints at all things---products, practices, processes, people---escaping the rules or bending paradigms. Atypique evokes, to paraphrase Alan Fletcher, looking sideways at all facets of contemporary types and typography: from technology to aesthetics, from economics to politics, from Latin to the world writing systems, from hand lettering to screen legibility, and from education to the very notion of authorship.

The three tremendous keynote speakers: Roger Black, Paula Scher, and Rod McDonald.

The identity of ATypI was expertly and daringly designed by Julien Hébert, who is based in Montreal. From the euphoric and "atypique" color palette, to the choice of a Montreal-grown typeface, Guillon (by Feedtype and Coppers and Brasses), and a series of stunning posters, this is identity design at its best.
