The Typecraft Initiative

TYPO Berlin 2017 Wanderlust | Friday, 26 May | 3:00 pm | Stage | English

The Typecraft Initiative is a self-initiated and self-funded project that aims to create a series of display typefaces — both in Latin and Indic scripts — out of ancient and traditional Indian crafts and tribal arts. The goal is to generate livelihood among craftspeople and tribal artists and to also promote, innovate and archive these art forms, some of which are on the brink of disappearing. Each typeface is made from a craft which belongs to a specific region, material, process and context. This talk will showcase some of the projects and typefaces created as a part of The Typecraft Initiative.
