ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale) is the premier worldwide organisation dedicated to type and typography. Founded in 1957, ATypI provides the structure for communication, information and action amongst the international type community.

ATypI, Association Typographique Internationale, is the global forum and focal point for the type community and business.

Who are the members of ATypI?
Everyone who matters in the type world. Type designers, type publishers, graphic and typographic designers, are all here. Many of our members are household names – if your household knows a serif from a broadsword. Information about the ATypI Board, the country delegates and corporate members can be found in the Who’s who section.

Who owns ATypI?
Its members. ATypI is a not-for-profit organisation which is democratically run by an elected Board. You can check the organisation's governing statutes (pdf).

Everywhere. We have members in over 40 nations, and almost 20 countries have their own country delegations. Administration is based in the USA and the (current) President is based in Paris. The official language of ATypI is International English.

What does ATypI do?
ATypI provides a structure for the type community to meet and act together. We not only preserve the culture, tradition and history of type and typography, we also
promote contemporary digital fonts

publish journals, newsletters and other publications

Every four or five years, ATypI awards the Prix Charles Peignot for Excellence in Type Design to a designer under the age of 35 who has made an oustanding contribution to type design.

Is membership for individuals or organisations?
Both. Individuals are people such as designers, art directors, educators, calligraphers, stone-cutters and software writers. Organisations include manufacturers and vendors in the graphic arts industry, as well as most significant software suppliers world-wide – type is on every screen.
