UPCOMING EVENT → ISType is partnering on an event with RAW, a duo that live codes experimental audiovisual performances. 


Thanks to improvisational computer programming structures, RAW invites audience members to become active observers of—and participants in—the process of generating music and visuals during their experiential live performances. “What does this have to do with type and typography?” you might wonder. Well, ISType will be providing type-related graphics to feed RAW’s visual performance for a unique audio-typographic collaboration: ISType × RAW. This event will be free of charge and warmly welcomes all type, design, and music enthusiasts.

ISType Mono is happening on 26 March, 2020 at SALT Galata at 19:00. Professional ballet dancer, mediocre type designer at Playtype and wannabe typographer Philipp Neumeyer is coming to Istanbul.


Philipp Neumeyer was born and raised in Northern Germany where he studied communication design at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design. He received his masters degree from the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in the The Hague, the Netherlands, in type design in the Type And Media class. From 2015 to early 2018 Philipp worked as a type designer at LucasFonts in Berlin and the rest of 2018 at Playtype in Copenhagen. Since then he moved back to Berlin to work as a freelance type designer.

Overamplifying. Overconnecting.
Side notes from a ceaseless process, ambiguous boredom, the constant reevaluation of sanity, what makes the semicolon the ideal punctuation mark, the tale I tell myself to sleep at night, reasons for keeping things vague, what I have learned so far, why I have lost every link to reality and the line between deceit and right now — All of this, nothing of the above and / or everything else or whatever I might have had for breakfast that day. Either way; my lawyers told me not to talk politics.
