    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.

    Granshan is the premier forum for typeface design and typography in a global context.
    Our annual conference provides a space to present the research behind innovation in global typeface design, and make connections with exceptional practitioners in the field.
    To mark our tenth anniversary we return to our original location, in Yerevan: a crossroads of cultures, and a place with a deep engagement with the written word. Our theme is “Living Letters”: we are inspired by the combination of a growing awareness of the complexity in regional and local cultures, and the constant change in global typography driven by new ways of authoring and reading content.
    We aim to promote reflective innovation. By fostering a deeper understanding of the rich histories that determine the present, and provide an environment for imaginative new ideas, we work to realise the potential to shape our relationship with texts through typeface design.
