Dec 19, 2019
In 2020, Typism is collaborating with International Women's Day to celebrate women typographers worldwide, helping to raise visibility and increase the volume of commissioned work for female lettering artists.

As part of this collaboration, we are hosting a competition for female hand letters to create work that supports the International Women's Day (IWD) 2020 campaign theme: #EachforEqual.
