Magazine professionals from in and around Calgary will probably look forward to the opportunity on Thursday, August 14 to talk typography with Janine Vangool, founder and proprietor of Art Central's Uppercase Gallery. The free event, open to the public, is co-sponsored by the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association and it's called Design Pairings.
The networking and learning opportunity -- which runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at #204, 100 - 7th Ave SW -- focuses on pairings: which typeface perfectly suits which image? Plus, Uppercase will have all its best toys on hand: letraset, woodtype, dimensional letters, rubber stamps, stickers, pegboard letters, typewriters, etc. so that people can play with type. No computers—this is all hands-on.Vangool graduated from the Visual Communications program at the Alberta College of Art & Design in 1995. Her solo design studio, Vangool Design & Typography, was formed the following year. Her client focus remains in arts and culture, creative small business and publishing. Past and current clients include Calgary Opera, ACAD, Ottawa Art Gallery, TRUCK gallery, Art Central, Beyond Magazine and Whitecap Books.
