Return to LA & AdobeMAX

I’m a big fan of the type folks at Adobe (nothing against the non-type folks, I just don’t know many of them, I’m sure they’re plenty nice as well), and I’ve been quite vocal about it.

One of the reasons that I’ve been so impressed with them lately is the... Continue Reading.

New camps announced soon…

We have a load of new camps coming up in the autumn. They’ll be announced by 1 June or 1 July so stay tuned!

Type from outside the classroom

While in the Bay Area in March running the 6 (!) camps over 10 days, there were a few other things that I noticed that don’t quite make it into my camp posts, some typographic, some feline, and some neither. Here I have lettering from around Potrero Hill, Madam Flo... Continue Reading.

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 graders at the Montessori school in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The morning was dedicated to... Continue Reading.

Bickham Script

I’ve recently partnered with Adobe Type on a few things, mainly the upcoming scholarship to Type Camp India. 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.

Web Type West, finally!

It is with great pride (and slightly bleary eyes) that I can announce Web Type West, Type Camp’s first ever conference! For those of you that have known me for a while, you know that I’ve been creating conferences for nearly 15 years. I’ve jumped back into it primarily because... Continue Reading.
