Type Brigade is Vancouver’s type design and typography meetup, where we host speakers every other month. This Type Walk is an off-month special event to coincide with Vancouver Design Week.

The Workshop


The first portion of the evening will be a workshop hosted by Ross Milne of Working Format. Ross studied type design at the internationally acclaimed Type & Media masters course at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK), is a contributing designer with Commercial Type in New York, and with Typotheque in the Hague, Netherlands.

This will take place at Chloi HQ, the Chloi Inc. office.

The Walk


Chloi HQ is in Gastown, which makes it only a short walk to the second half of the evening: the walk! The Type Walk itself will be hosted by Christian Dahlberg of Vancouver Neon.

About Vancouver Design Week

Among other things, Vancouver Design Week is looking to

cross-pollenate and empower designers and design-thinkers across disciplines … in Vancouver, and beyond. Vancouver Design Week

This is something particularly important to us with Type Brigade. Type has a place in most disciplines, and is a great way to start conversations about design.

Hope to see you on September 26th!
