Type Brigade

I find, if you speak about anything for long enough, it always comes back to type.

All the more reason to speak about it sooner.

Speakers at Type Brigade №23

The next Type Brigade will feature two fantastic talks. One talk will focus on typography, and the other on type design.

Peter Cocking

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 and explore the typographic thinking behind the exhibition.

Advance Typography class

In place of a second talk, we’ll have many. The Advanced Typography class will each give a two-minute lightning talks on a variety of typography work they’ve completed this semester. You’ll be able to tour the exhibition before we start and after the talks.

Call for Speakers

The Call for Speakers is currently open. If you don’t think you’re a presenter, we’d like the opportunity to prove you wrong.


Type Brigade is free to attend, which would not be possible without our sponsors.
