What's Happening

All of my new old friends

Goblin type with (non-goblin) kids

My favourite camp of 2014 was not India or Galiano or even Facebook or AdobeMax, although I loved them all (really!). The one that will stay with me for years to come was our short workshop with the 4th & 5th … continue reading

Vancouver (multi-camp) reunion

Oh Vancouver! It must be partly the location (Gastown is impossibly hip) or our workshop space (Fluevog is impossibly cool) that makes the Van classes so great – but I know it’s really the folks. Nearly all of the attendees … continue reading

We had our first ever San Francisco Type Camp in the Portrero Hill Adobe offices and you can bet we’ll be back there! With catered breakfast & lunch (so. much. lovely. food.), a convenient location, and a super hip building, it … continue reading

Twice as many at AdobeMax

Our time at Adobe’s awesome Adobe Max conference was mind-blowing! It was absolutely one of the coolest conferences that I’ve ever attended and it really was an honour to be able to have our very own Type Camp in the program. … continue reading
