Madrid´s type festival fills the city´s agenda with two months of events and activities with this year’s theme «Testimonies»: what’s behind typeface design. Four venues, two days of conferences, three exhibitions, four workshops, three type safaris and much more.
It´s the one and only typography festival in Madrid. Typomad is the key to
spreading typographic culture in our city and supporting the design scene,
creating a living space for professionals, students and enthusiasts.
The main event of Typomad is the two day series of conferences in
Centro Cultural Conde Duque, where we bring together great figures of
our national and also the international scene with young and innovative
projects. Typomad is a participatory event, we organize an international
open call for experimental posters and also a national open call for young
projects for our conferences.
Our exhibitions have a clear educational focus, so all audiences can
enjoy them. We bring international exhibitions to Madrid, but also we
create related contents to the current year’s theme, in order to generate
debate and to share cutting edge projects and innovations. Every year we
organize workshops that will be interesting for the general public and also
for other cross-cutting disciplines such as journalism, digital applications
Chulotype is a non-profit association that works to promote typography.
Besides Typomad, we fill Madrid’s agenda with typographic events and
activities during the year, such as our monthly Aperitipo, workshops
and type safaris, guided visits that discover and rediscover the city and
its typographic history with a different point of view. We also promote
typographic culture through the Internet and we will be launching our
on-line publication shortly.
