About Type Brigade
Type Brigade is Vancouver’s type speaker series. We organise about 6 events a year on typography, type design, lettering, and other subjects through the lens of letters. We find, if you speak about anything for long enough, it always comes back to type—all the more reason to speak about it sooner.
All contributors and speakers hope to bring the type and design community in Vancouver a little closer together.
Kenneth is an independent designer specialising in type design and typographic software development.
Alanna is a freelance interaction designer, typographer, letter-maker and code explorer.
Nancy Wu is a graphic designer specializing in brand identity, idea generation and art direction.
