Country and community delegates

The ATypI delegate group aims to represent type folks where they live and work, nurturing new talent while supporting longtime practitioners. The international type community is rich and diverse; part of ATypI’s mission is to uplift designers from underrepresented communities.

These delegates are an integral part of ATypI’s outreach efforts. ATypI delegates are active in their local design networks; they are also teachers and mentors, working with schools and cultural organizations, reporting on the state of type and typography in their communities, and facilitating communication and action with other ATypI members.

Find out more about the ATypI country and community delegate responsibilities. This program has been revamped, and we look forward to showcasing all the delegates and their many communities early in 2023.
