The TypeLab at Typographics 2023 will host a series of informal workshops, demos, interviews, experiments, and more.
TypeLab is an informal, multi-day, typographic hackathon coordinated by Petr van Blokland to complement to the main Typographics conference and workshops. Like the original TypeLab events in the 1990s, it is a place for people to meet and talk about type and design with an informal structure that allows more spontaneity and interaction than typical mainstage conference events.
This year’s TypeLab will be a hybrid schedule, with a combination of in-person events in New York and online events around the globe, with hosts and participants livestreaming on three parallel channels:
Hosted in person in NYC by Dual Type.
Hosted online by Petr van Blokland with Maarten Renckens
Hosted online by Universal Thirst
|In-person TypeLab Americas events, in NYC||Streaming TypeLab Europe & Asia events, online|
Day 1June 13*

Register for streaming access
Day 2June 15*
|Free and open to the public (no registration required)|
Day 3June 20*
|None planned (though an in-person headquarters for viewing other livestream channels may be organized)|
Most in-person TypeLab events will be free and open to the public at 41 Cooper Square in NYC, just across the street from the Great Hall where the main Typographics conference will be taking place.
Streaming TypeLab events will be hosted on Zoom. Each of our 3 international hosts will manage their own separate Zoom meetings.
To actively participate in streaming events, you must register for streaming access. Registered attendees will be emailed info for joining the Zoom meetings, where they can interact with other attendees and presenters, and enjoy the best video quality.
TypeLab participants are subject to our Code of Conduct & Policies. If you do not agree to these conditions, do not register or attend any TypeLab events.
TypeLab registration is separate from the main Typographics conference and workshops. You must register for those events separately.
More details about the schedule and attending TypeLab will be posted in coming weeks. For updates and announcements, join the Typographics mailing list and follow Typographics on Mastodon, Twitter, and Instagram.
