O Festival Plus+ é dos poucos festivais dedicados inteiramente à criação de Design Tipo/Gráfico colocando em destaque a inovação, o “pioneirismo” e as novidades internacionais:

Este ano conta com uma lista de participantes muito interessante, mas o facto de se estar a fazer destaque nesta página, é que a edição deste ano conta com uma participação muito especial, “prata-da-casa”: Vítor Quelhas.

No e-mail enviado hoje através da Mailing List do festival encontra-se a listagem completa dos participantes (oradores):


Plus International Design Festival
is pleased to announce the

Moving Type Conference speakers

17, 18, 19 October 2007
The Wild Building
, 93-96 Floodgate Street, Birmingham B5

As in previous years the 2007 Conference promises to be something of a typo/graphic jamboree with an international line-up of speakers whose interpretations on Moving Type will certainly inspire your typo/graphic heart, realign your typo/graphic mind, and touch your typo/graphic soul.

Come and listen to a heady mix of talks that cover life, love, flight and fancy, which bounce from Bournemouth to Brazil from India to Italy. Moving Type promises a diverse programme, which includes letters on the seashore and words in the city, type on the screen, on paper, stone and water; and musings on both the past, present and future of typo/graphic design.

Speakers come from across continents and across disciplines: from type and typo/graphic design, illustration, digital media, publishing and education; from the UK, US, EU and Asia. And for the first time ever, amongst the known and established speakers the Conference has invited a number of undergraduates to take the platform and bring a fresh slant to an established subject.

In addition to the Conference you are invited to experience the rest of the Festival: enjoy the typo/graphic-exhibitions; sample the workshops; view the best is graphic design at the Expo; pull on you walking boots and explore the typographic streets of Birmingham; and relax and enjoy some good food, wine and company at the Plus parties.
