ISType (Istanbul Typography Seminars) brings together students, academics, and industry professionals to discuss issues in typography, current innovations in the field, and areas for growth in the future. The main objective is to establish a theoretical framework to learn the origins of typography and to understand where it is heading. A series of talks and applied workshops are led by nationally and internationally renowned typographers, calligraphers, and scholars.

The most recent event, ISType 2017 Variation, was organized at SALT Galata in June 2017. Our next conference will gather typography enthusiasts in June 2019. In order to keep our community alive, a single lecture series, Mono, will continue to take place between the main conferences.
