About the speaker

Clube dos Tipos emerges from the collaborative efforts of graphic designers Joana Monteiro and Paul Hardman, based on their common interest in typography. Joana and Paul work together in commercial and personal projects as well as organizing workshops and events.
Typography workshops are at the centre of Clube dos Tipos’ endeavours but the restrictions associated with this technique are not seen as a limitation but rather as a starting point. Joana and Paul encourage experimentation and the use of new technologies, in combination with traditional types in metal and wood, in order to obtain more unconventional results.
