Details

Type Brigade is Vancouver’s typography meetup. We’re back with our first event of the year with Lost Type on January 9th! Join us for Type Brigade №41.

Lost Type (https://losttype.com) is a distributed, pay-what-you-want type foundry established in 2011, and its model and typefaces have been useful and influential to design students and professionals alike.

As all Lost Type contributors work together remotely, every so often, some of them get together in a single city. Following a successful trip to Vancouver in 2016, we’re excited to welcome them back to present their work at Type Brigade!

• Doors: 6:30PM
• Talks begin: 7:00PM

Riley Cran (https://rileycran.com), co-founder and type director of Lost Type from Vancouver
