GRANSHAN, IDEEC's partner organization, will feature the typeface designs of the recent five years of GRANSHAN Winners (Non-Latin Type Design competitions) at the venue along with main Exhibitions at the Hammer Theatre.

The GRANSHAN Competition covers a growing range of scripts for communities on a global scale – from the most widely used, to scripts in use by small communities or those under threat. All type designers, type foundries, and clients with custom typefaces from all parts of the world are invited to take part in the competition.

The committee select the most excellent Non-Latin typefaces in the world, more than 60 international, well-known script experts have judged the entries in a three-level-process.
The first annual IDEEC (International Design Education Expo & Conference) is an innovative, dynamic, motivating event that is developed through global design institutions. Our global perspectives, diverse culture, and wide-ranging specialties is what makes our conference unique. It also provides special reinforcement to the design education community.
