Tino Graß
Visual Communication Designer & Founder
of »studio tino graß«, Cologne

For some artist, typography is an elementary tool in their work. »Art is type! Is type art? And if type is art! Is art type?«, stresses the Cologne-based designer Tino Graß. Based on his experiences and interviews with many artists, Graß will in his talk have a deeper look into their work and will illustrate how they use typography, if they have developed a specific individual typeface, and what they think about typographic rules. Since Tino Graß has been delivering sophisticated solutions across a wide range of applications from editorial, corporate and exhibition design to print medias, he will also give an insider’s view into book design and exhibition design for and with art. Tino Graß has been teaching visual communication and typography since 2008, giving lectures and workshops in several universities and institutions for art and design like, among others, Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd, Hochschule Düsseldorf, Museum Ludwig Köln, and City Gallery Wellington/New Zealand.


The talk will be held in English language.
