Type Brigade is Vancouver’s typography and type design meetup. We’re excited to announced that Type Brigade №29 is on December 1st. Our last meetup of the year will be our second annual collaboration with The Pop-Up Museum of Typography at Emily Carr University.
The Fifth Annual Pop-Up Museum of Typography is a one-of-a-kind installation, loaded with fun-filled, educational, interactive typographic exhibits. It will be at the Emily Carr University Concourse Gallery from December 1st through 4th, but you’ll want to be there opening night for Type Brigade.
Please note we’ll be at Emily Carr University on Granville Island rather than our usual location.
You’ll be able to come check out the exhibition before and after the talks, which will start at 7:00.
• Doors: 6:30PM
• Talks begin: 7:00PM
• View the exhibition afterwards
