Halifax Design Meet

That’s right, Halifax. The second Halifax Design Meet is scheduled for tomorrow night. The last time I organized something like this was back in March, so we’re long overdue to kick back, have a drink and talk about fonts. Here’s the details:

When: Wednesday, June 22, 7pm
Where: Gatsby’s Bar and Eatery, 5675 Spring Garden (map)
Who: Artists, designers and everyone in between

Swing on by and say hello to a friendly crowd. Hope to see you there!


  1. Wish I could be there! Have a blast guys :)

  2. Which I’d be living in Halifax! Oh well. That “poster” you created for it is pretty swell too.

    Paul, you’ll drive to Toronto and not Halifax? That’s discrimination, buddy.

    Simon, thanks bro! I can’t take credit though, I aped Josef Müller-Brockmann a bit for the layout. :)

  4. Rad. I may swing by to say hello!

  5. Peterpasha

    Woot! ‘everyone in between’ covers me, so I will be there!

    Hey Piercey! Do it, man. The last time we all got together it was a great time. Be great to see you.

    Peter, your attendance is mandatory.

  7. James, do one of these on a weekend and I’ll fly in. ( on a plane ) ;)

  8. cool. maybe I’ll join you guys.

  9. also, the graphic on this poster looks like a Simon.

  10. Did someone say fonts?
    @James: Be careful what you wish for…
    (and I can’t quite tell at this resolution, but it appears as though you are using a foot mark instead of an apostrophe)
    ((Akzidenz Grotesque))
    (((bring it)))

    Chris, how about I leave my foot mark on your ass?

    Also, you going to swing by tomorrow?

    It is a cruel, cruel world where my 9-5 design job is gonna hamper me getting to this. How late they usually go? Do I have to buy type inspired shots for everyone if I’m late?

    Alison, I was just going to contact you, actually. We’ll probably be there until 10 or 11. Will that work for you?

  14. Alex Varanese

    Your new logotype is GROTESK, dude. It looks like some kind of… grotesque accident. Seriously though, it looks awesome. Can’t wait to see it roll out in more places.

  15. AKnott

    Yar, I’ll be there at some point. I’ll just sit under the table if there’s no room. Free crumbs!

  16. I will be there next time!!! So bummed!

    Although type inspired shots do sound intriguing. Helvetica Hammer or Comic Sans Cooler anyone?
