“It was a real pleasure to work with the students as they embarked on such a fantastic opportunity and journey. It’s not just about making a typeface but looking and being inspired by the whole history that France has to offer this art. Well done TypeParis!”

”The best part of TypeParis isn’t the incredibly inspiring and historic city of Paris, or the wonderful instructors, or the friends you will make that will be your friends for years to come, but the amazing sense of community you will experience during those 5 weeks. Finding your people, type lovers just like yourself, and experience the generosity of the instructors and visiting lecturers, that truly is the best part, this will be one of the most rewarding experiences you will have, and surely the best present you can give to yourself.”

“I had the privilege of learning under the tuition of Jean François Porchez, a great mentor who taught me a way of hand drawing type design that I continue to apply everyday. I am eternally grateful for his support and his help. Don’t miss this opportunity: type design, inspirational talks and great mentors, all in the old and beautiful Paris, it can’t get any better than that!”

“TypeParis is definitely the event every type lover was waiting for. We don’t have a a lot of opportunity to share this passion, particularly in France, so it would be a shame to miss it!”

“A brilliant combination of tutoring and talks with, among other luminaries of the type world, award winning designer and educator, Jean François Porchez. And it’s hosted in Paris! What could be better.”
