The 5th annual Typography Day Conference (TypoDay 2012) was organized at the Industrial Design Centre (IDC) at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The conference allowed me to share research, network with typographers from across the globe and collect research on mother-tongue typography projects.
Over a three day period, TypoDay 2012 addressed issues faced by type designers, type users, and type educators under the theme ‘Typography in Publication Design.’
After a double-blind peer-review of my paper, “Teaching Maya to the Next Generation: Children’s Publication Design in a Multilingual Context” I was invited to present the research during the three-day conference.
It was an exciting opportunity (although somewhat intimidating) to present to such a large auditorium of designers, students, and faculty. But the audience was receptive and engaged throughout each presentation, including my own.
I’m looking forward to integrating the feedback I received into my upcoming research and hope to eventually collaborate with some of the outstanding designers I met during the event.
