The theme of this years TypoCraftHelsinki is “Kauno”, or “Joint Writing”. We have invited graphic artists, designers, craftspeople and artists to design artworks or products that take Kauno as their starting point. We want to see ideas which combine the theme – freely interpreted – and typography in a new way with the material and form, and in which typography expands from two dimensions to at least three.

TypoCraftHelsinki is an organic event concept operating on the biennale principle. It consists of an exhibition, workshop and international cooperation. The aim of TypoCraftHelsinki is to arouse visitors’ interest in typography and letters in a range of sectors and from new perspectives. TCH offers exhibitors a forum to experiment, investigate, go deeper and cooperate while breaking down professional boundaries.

This year we will exhibit over 20 artists and designers. The exhibition takes place in two locations, Lokal Gallery and Erottaja 2.
