The Grand Old Type Party is a 6-day typographic festival showcased in San Francisco, CA. A line up of typographic based talks, workshops, and gallery shows, make up this unique festival. Designers are encouraged to submit typographic works inspired by politics today, for display throughout the different galleries.
The theme, That’s What He Said focuses on challenging the voice of the designer in politics. While our political officials are free to say, do and criticize, from any platform they choose; designers should be exploring those same risks. A poster or image can spark hope, fear or even hatred. As designers we have power in this space, it is time to start using it.
Make a Statement. Leave Nothing Out.
No Omitted Matter.
