  • Type Brigade №43 × Vancouver Design Week 2018
    On May 7, Type Brigade will help to kick-off Vancouver Design Week! Doors are at 6:30pm, talks begin at 7:00PM. Speakers Angela Bains – The lost art of hand-rendering type Typographic education in the 1970–80s focussed on craft, and desire to create beauty. Feeling each curve while tracing a letter gave the designer a respect for each letterform. Angela Bains will show us original examples of this process—and how designers are teaching it to a new generation today. http://transformexp.com/ Matthew Smith – The beautiful game Football (Soccer) has a long tradition of being a source for inspiration and expression for designers. From flags, placards, banners seen on the terraces, to the squad numbers on the players shirts Football is a sport with a wealth of typographic heritage. In this talk, Matthew Smith will take us through this, and how it influenced a project he led at Engine Digital. http://www.matthewsmithdesign.net/ About Type Brigade Type Brigade (http://typebrigade.com) is Vancouver’s typography and type design speaker series.

    Type Brigade is Vancouver’s typography speaker series. For our second event of the year, we’ll hear from Arabic calligrapher Tauheed Faheem, and graphic designer Lidia Perez! Doors are at 6:30pm, talks begin at 7:00PM. Speakers Tauheed Faheem Tauheed Faheem teaches Arabic calligraphy in the greater Vancouver area. Traditionally very structured and disciplined art, calligraphy can be very intimidating to newcomers. His Grey Lines project provides an alternative for those who just want to learn about the general concept of calligraphy and pen control. At Type Brigade, he’ll share his journey from learning to teaching Arabic calligraphy, and what calligraphy means to him in our world today. http://tauheedfaheem.com/greylines/ Lidia Perez Lidia Perez is a graphic designer based in Vancouver, via Tijuana. In the 2000s, she designed a font that went on to become part of a cultural movement evolving electronic music folk music named NORTEC collective. Internationally, they are now considered pioneers in it. The root of this movement is to show the impact between US-Mexico cultures at the border. Lidia’s talk will look at the unique identity coming from this time and location, and the power of graphic design as expression, and as a complement to other disciplines.

We commit to this through our attendee, organiser, and speaker Code of Conduct (http://typebrigade.com/code-of-conduct). We strive to create a welcoming, safe environment to learn, for people of all backgrounds, and we’re committed to enforcing this through our attendee, organiser, speaker, and sponsor Code of Conduct. Accessibility information I wrote in the original event description that, as an organisation, we are working to improve our accessibility considerations and documentation. Due to this unexpected location change, we are now in an older building in Gastown that is at the top of a tall flight of stairs and is not nearly as accessible. I sincerely apologize for this, and if you or one of your guests will have difficulty attending because of this change, please get in touch with me: [masked] In addition, we will to be back at a location with elevators for our next event in May, and can I pre-reserve a spot for you at that event. If you require other accessibility-related measures (ex. sign language interpretation, captioning, etc.) please contact [masked] Other questions If you have questions about the event, you can always contact [masked] or [masked] . Follow us Make sure you follow @typebrigade on Twitter (http://twitter.com/typebrigade) and Instagram (http://instagram.com/typebrigade), and mention us if you have any questions. See you at the event!
