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.
Introducing Type Brigade: Vancouver’s type design and typography speaker series meetup. It’s community-driven and completely free to attend.

Speakers at Type Brigade №22
The next Type Brigade will feature two fantastic talks. One talk will focus on typography, and the other on type design.
Jenny Chow is a registered architect in Vancouver, but her work is decidedly international. She has completed projects in Germany, Ireland, and Austria, in addition to the Alessi flagship store in New York City, and the winning design of the China Insurance Group Tower in Shenzhen, China. Previously, she worked in New York and Vienna, holds a Masters in Architecture and Bachelor in Environmental Design Studies from Dalhousie University in Halifax, and is now focused on the construction of Vancouver House as part of Dialog.
Alvin Kwan & Vince Lo
Faculty is a studio founded by designers Alvin Kwan and Vince Lo. They focus on communication in various mediums—screen, print, and more—and value presentation with clarity, honesty, and sincerity. Their work has been recognised by Applied Arts, the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, HOW, and the GDC. Before this? They established Practice Type to house their initial foray into type design, which included the Chinese and Latin face Collator.
