If you’re burned out from work, want to learn more about type, or just need a relaxing vacation with other Typophiles, then this camp is the one for you!

Type Camp Brazil is an educational and professional training event that will strengthen your typography. We dedicate five full days in the countryside surrounding Campinas to discussions, projects, talks, and workshops, which are all focused on helping you to rediscover creativity in typography.

Experienced instructors will share their professional processes and typographic knowledge with you to help you to become a better typographer and a better designer. Each day features seven hours of practical seminars and hands-on workshops that cover letterform structure, letter anatomy, typeface selection, visual context and cues, typesetting techniques, and more.

Our instructors will assist you with your current projects, analyze your past projects, and help you plan for your future projects, all within the widening realm of typography and design.
