Clare Bell

Dublin, Ireland • Running for a one-year term


I've been a board member for a number of years and have remained active throughout this period, through my involvement on the Internationalization Committee, the Marketing Committee and in particular the Governance Committee where I carried out the research, development and co-writing of ATypI's Code of Conduct. I would love to build on this work for the good of the organisation and our members and  participants. With my colleague Mary Ann Bolger, I also organised ATypI's annual conference in Dublin in 2010 'ATypI: The Word'. I am co-founder of Typography Ireland research seminar group, which aims to link local researchers and practitioners in Ireland with the global ATypI network, strengthening participation and inclusion for all. Thank you!
