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.
