Forthcoming TRI Events 

 14 September, University of Huddersfield + University of Salford  |  16 November, University of Derby  |  20 February, Anglia Ruskin University

The Typographic Research Initiative [TRI] was founded in 2010 and is open to all those with an academic, professional or passing interest in typographic and typeface design and members include creative practitioners as well as academics, researchers, teachers and research students.

The TRI provides support to all those working and researching in the typographic field, offers a testing ground for new work, and acts as a central exchange at which ideas can be shared and discussed. Although based at Birmingham City University, the Group comprises academics, researchers and students from many other institutions and welcomes practitioners from across the United Kingdom.

TRI meetings are held regularly throughout the academic year, alongside symposia and other special events. Announcements about TRI activities are published thorough this website.
