Three Filipino designers join TypeLab Asia as presenters

TypeLab Asia hosts another multi-day online event and hackathon, serving type enthusiasts and designers from the pan-Asian region. From its series of hybrid work­shops, demos, inter­views, and experiments, three Filipinos are presenting at the event.

Scheduled in three separate days, the last day set on June 20 (Tuesday) is with Netherlands-based designer Megan Palero presenting the last Filipino talk for this edition.

Palero will present "Traces of Lettering Styles Found in Davao City" highlighting type documentation from their account @urbantypedvo.

Meanwhile, Renzel Perey and John David Maza have already presented their topics. Perey talked about his Letras y Figuras typeface based on the cultural practices from different parts of the Philippines last June 13. In addition, Maza shared about a possible standard for Filipino type designers, presenting the Filipino Charset last June 15.

This year's edition is also co-hosted by Type63 through Jo Malinis, facilitating Q&As and engagements for all the participants.

Details for this event are on Type63's Instagram account. TypeLab Asia's Day 3 will be hosted live via Zoom, and live-streamed publicly via YouTube. Days 1 and 2 are also available for late super streaming.

TypeLab is an offshoot of Typographics 2023, a physical type conference in the US. It is hosted online and simultaneously in the Americas, Europe, and Asia and will last until June 20.
