7th International Conference on Typography & Visual Communication

Challenging design paths

Main Conference, 19–21 June 2019
Workshops, 17–18 June 2019

The 7th ICTVC will take place from 19 to 21 June 2019 in Patras, Greece. The conference will be organised by the Institute for the Study of Typography & Visual Communication in collaboration with the Library & Information Centre of the University of Patras and will be supported by academic and professional organisations. A series of workshops will precede the conference and a range of exhibitions will frame and enrich the main event.

Since its inception in 2002, ICTVC has established itself as one of the most prominent international events in its field. Supporting open meaningful dialogue, the conference attracts people from many different countries and disciplines who share a passion for research, education, and practice in relation to typography and visual communication.

ICTVC’s thematic areas are informed by its previous events, and are formulated in response to the sociopolitical, economic and cultural environment. It places this discourse in the context of the impact of new technologies on research, theory, history, education and practice in typography, printing, publishing, and other visual communication disciplines.

The theme of the 7th ICTVC 2019 is Challenging design paths. It will examine the value of design for visual communication and provoke participants to challenge current assumptions.
