Type Camp Bloggin’

Still Giddy from Galiano

There have been many wonderful camps since this whole adventure started, and, to be honest, they just keep getting better. Australia was amazing, and then so was California (both of them), and then Bauhaus, and Japan, and all the others (too many to list!). India this spring was incredible and... Continue Reading.

Helvetica and self-doubt

Earlier this week, I was fortunate enough to attend Doug Coupland’s ‘Cocktails & Helvetica’ event at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

While there, I ran into the wonderful Joelle, Type Camp alum from 2008 (my goodness, has it really been that long?). Here she is alongside a portion of... Continue Reading.

Our swirly-whirly weekend

I’ve been looking for a place to write about typography, but more little tidbits of history along with practical use tips, and I’ve found it with the Adobe Type Blog. There will... Continue Reading.

This autumn, I was interviewed (here at my home – look at that view!) by the North Carolina State University College of Design, where I received my Bachelors degree in Environmental Design in Graphic Design 25 years ago (eek!). They featured me in the ‘innovation’ issue of their Design Life... Continue Reading.
