40 years ago, Turing Award winning computer scientist Donald Knuth teamed up with MacArthur Fellow type designer Chuck Bigelow to convene “The Computer and the Hand in Type Design,” an ATypI-sponsored conference that formed part of one the world’s earliest digital typography graduate programs. In recognition of this momentous anniversary in both Stanford and design history, and building upon the success of the 2017 Face / Interface gathering, we are delighted to announce a second international conference bringing together scholars, designers, engineers, and technologists to explore global type design, book design, interface design, and human-computer interaction.
