Vancouver’s typography meetup is back: join us on December 4th for Type Brigade №44, for our 4th annual collaboration with The Pop-Up Type Museum at Emily Carr University!

The Pop-Up Type Museum is an annual installation, loaded with fun-filled, educational, interactive typographic exhibits. It will be at new Emily Carr University campus from December 4th through 7th, but you’ll want to be there opening night for Type Brigade.

Join us for a series of lightning talks with Peter Cocking and the designers, and be the first to see the exhibition.

• Doors: 6:30PM
• Talks begin: 7:00PM
• View the exhibition afterwards

Peter Cocking – Introducing the The Pop-Up Type Museum

Peter Cocking is one of Canada’s most celebrated book designers. He’s spoken on typography and design across the US & Canada, from Pecha Kucha Vancouver to the Type Directors Club in New York. Our first talk of the evening will see him introduce the typographic thinking behind the exhibition.

Una Gil, Rebecca Lo & Vivian Chen, Olivia Wakeham, Olivia Jin, Molly Sjerdal, Leonie Weiss, Laurens Spangenberg, Fiona Lee & Fiona Siu, Eno Won, Curtis Lau, Ryann Carney, Chloe Brumwell, Brenda Han & Ji Young (Vivien) Park, and Angela Donakhristi – Lightning Talks

The designers exhibiting in The Pop-Up Type Museum will each give a concise talk about their typographic work. You’ll be able to tour the exhibition before and after the talks.
