6 Reasons to join Type Kita 2015!

I think everyone loves seeing pretty typography quotes in their feeds, it’s an instant pick-me-up for those days you just feel so sluggish and uninspired. Typographers are artists that inspire me so much because they too use 26 letters but in a different way.  WORDS AND LETTERS ARE POWERFUL, PEOPLE.

Anyway, I’m really proud that Manila’s local typographers are grouping together for another Type Kita event this December 12-13! you don’t need to be an expert to go, whether you’re an enthusiast or a person who appreciates typography (like me), everyone is invited! Still not convinced to go? Well, I’ve listed more reasons you should!

ONE: It’s only a Php100 for the gate fee!One Hundred Pesos is very affordable for an event with a lot of activities. That’s like one Zig Brush pen or a fraction of a tall cappuccino for an 11AM-8PM exhibit, demo and art trade!

TWO: Live demos from some of the best local typographers and calligraphers! Yup, that means live art! You’ll get to see your lettering idols in their craft as they paint and write on wooden panels! There will also be a big glass where doodling will be involved. DOODLING. WILL. BE. INVOLVED. I LOVE DOODLING!

THREE: Meet more type-geeks and get inspired! If you’re a budding artist who wants to meet people who are just as passionate with what you’re passionate about (Phew, that was a handful!). Yes, this includes meeting Manila’s typography superstars and possibly… The love of your life. Lol. Okay, maybe, just maybe 🙂

FOUR: Exchange gift time! You can bring your work or some tools you no longer use and trade it with someone who has something you need.

FIVE: Shop for more materials to fuel your passion! There will be pop-up shops that will be selling brushes, inks and other type-like merchandise!

SIX: It’s an event with a cause.Proceeds from the event will be for the benefit of Project PEARLS, Pearls is a non-profit organization that aims to provide unprivileged kids with Peace, Education, Aspiration, Respect, Love & Smiles. If that ain’t the cutest acrostic you’ve seen then I don’t know what is! You can even write Christmas cards, design covers of blank notebooks and leave behind hand-lettered pieces as part of gift kits for the kids of PROJECT PEARLS.
