UKType is calling for graphic designers and typographers to give poster presentations or to speak at a symposium at the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design this summer. The theme is typographic horizons.

Submissions can be anything within this theme, from a presentation on history by a typography academic to an exploration of new frontiers in web typography by a digital designer. Presentations will encompass both theoretical talks and practical demonstrations.

The organizers are seeking creatives and experts from across the spectrum, including typography, type design, digital media, printing, publishing and advertising.

To apply for the symposium, send a CV and a 300-word proposal to Caroline Archer (caroline@uktype.com) by email or to the following address:

Type, 1st Floor, The Toll House, The Bond, 180-82 Fazeley Street, Birmingham B5 5SE

The deadline is July 31.
