Grant Hutchinson - Type Camp

Grant Hutchinson

Web Type West

Grant photographs suburbia, parses fonts, noodles code, appreciates obsolete computing platforms, and sweats the details in Calgary, Alberta. He enjoys black coffee, low-bit electropop, geometric sans serifs, Chuck Taylor hightops, Speyside single malts, juggling, and the smell of a freshly tarred roof. His background includes a Diploma in Visual Arts from the Alberta College of Art & Design (ACAD), an Emmy Award for his technical work during the 1988 Winter Olympics, and being one of the founders of Veer. He is a contributing editor of Typedia and currently wears the hat of head glyph monkey at Typostrophe and Fairgoods.

food

Sushi. Steak, rare. Stinky cheese. Asian pears. Olives. Toasted ciabatta. Leftovers made into a sandwich for breakfast. Bacon.

book

Anything by William Gibson, Arthur C. Clarke, or Charles Seife.

drink

Speyside single malt scotch. Ultra dry vodka martinis. Sun-Rype apple lime juice. V8. Espresso. Anything with extra pulp.

film/tv

Classic science fiction movies. Mythbusters. I also watch an uncomfortable amount of Canadian Pickers and Storage Wars. My all time favourite film is a toss up between Sneakers and The Muppet Movie.

travel

At some point, I really need to get my white Canadian ass over to Europe.

collection

Old cameras. Old computers. Slinkys. I also have a mason jar full of those little red plastic sticks that you use to spread cheese onto crackers.

invention

We’re living in the future. Everything is being reinvented every day.

plant

I have a simple appreciation for cactus, but I absolutely adore the wild bergamot (or bee balm) plant that grows in our garden. In the summertime, the entire yard smells like Earl Grey tea.

sound

Eclectic … on perpetual shuffle. Bitshifter to Andy Williams to Nine Inch Nails to Nelly Furtado to Waylon Jennings to the original Broadway cast of Fiddler on the Roof.

blog

Are those even still a thing? Mostly I hang out on Twitter and Flickr, but you can find me all over the interwebs, gathering and contributing.

Whippets.

expert

If persnicketiness is a useful trait,
I’m an expert at that.
