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.
