Typomania-2019’s theme is «Before and after. All about the history of font and its future.»
The festival hosts two Swiss projects. One of those is the exhibition «Most Beautiful Swiss Books» featuring award winning artists of the cognominal contest of the past three years.
Besides that, Typomania will spotlight posters of the Swiss graphic designers, representatives of different generations and styles who demonstrate both handmade and technological approach to the image creation process. Among those are Niklaus Troxler, the founding father of the Swiss poster, Annik Troxler, known for her special approach to combining typography and image, and Josh Schaub, motion designer, animated graphics specialist, and founder of the «moving posters’ genre.»
Designers will give lectures and masterclasses for general public and experts. The Swiss poster exhibit will take place in Moscow and Arkhangelsk. Niklaus Troxler will give a workshop in Arkhangelsk Regional Research Library. More
