So let’s say, you just discovered something new. It might be a hobby, a new TV show or it might even be someone you just met! The thing is, you’ve grown so attracted by the very existence of it and you end up wanting to know everything about it. Have you considered counting how many times you’ve thought about it? How about counting how many times you’ve talked about it? If it was more than 3 times a day, then it’s undeniably have become something you like. To be honest, this was what I felt when I first got introduced to Typography. “Typography is the style, arrangement, or appearance of printed letters on a page” – Merriam Webster.
It was really predestined that when I was starting to get involved with the said art, an exhibit was opening in 10a Alabama. I immediately invited Discovering Danyela and there we went out to Cubao to explore the world of Typography!
Type Kita is the first typography exhibit in the Philippines (and it was also for the benefit of the Yolanda survivors) It was held last March 15 – 16 (2014) at 10a Alabama, Cubao. It featured Filipino typography artists where they showcased their works for all type enthusiasts to see!
