ATypI appoints new Executive Director

Tamye Riggs is new Executive Director, Barbara Jarzyna leaves after eight years outstanding service to ATypI.

Tamye Riggs, incoming ATypI Executive DirectorAssociation Typographique Internationale (ATypI) is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Executive Director, Tamye Riggs. Tamye has more than twenty years of experience in the type and design community. She previously served as Executive Director of the Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) and TypeCon (2002–2010), and as General Manager of FontShop San Francisco (2004–2005), as well as writing, editing, and consulting extensively about type. The ATypI Board welcomes Tamye and is looking forward to working with her on our 2016 conference in Warsaw and in the future.

President José Scaglione said: “Because of its global nature, ATypI is in a unique position to promote the integration of all those who are involved in the field of typography through their profession or their interests. The association will continue to develop its focus in key areas of our industry, such as education, technology, and business, and it will also play a leading role in building and supporting the wider typographic community.”

Barbara Jarzyna, outgoing Executive DirectorThe Board is grateful to our outgoing Executive Director, Barbara Jarzyna, for guiding ATypI through its past eight years. Over that period, with Barbara’s hands-on help, we have reached beyond our core community to embrace a truly global type world, hosting conferences in East Asia and South America as well as many parts of Europe. Anyone who has known Barbara from our conferences or through correspondence knows how quick she has been to help everyone in the ATypI community, and how effective she has been in running our conferences and the business of the Association.

The transition will be complete by the first of January. The email address for reaching the Executive Director remains <secretariat@atypi.org>.
