The typographische gesellschaft austria has organised the must ambitious exhibition of Austrian type design to date. ‘Subtext: Typedesign. zeitgenössisch–lokal: contemporary–austrian’ is on show in the Design Forum in the Viennese Museumsquartier from April 12 to May 26, 2017. The vernissage on April 11 was a great success and the venue crammed with visitors. Last week two talks by Elias Hanzer and Schriftlabor opened the accompanying lecture series which is going to feature two talks per week. For the programme see the official tga website. As part of the exhibition the special ‘type designers at work’ programme gives visitors the opportunity to look over the shoulder of select practitioners working in the exhibition venue. In addition to my talk on May 10, I am going to participate in this part of the programme on May 16 from 10 to 12am. I look forward to meet visitors and answer any questions that they might have!
