CALGARY—Janine Vangool, a local designer and art gallery owner, will be giving a talk and offering design feedback at her Uppercase Gallery in Calgary on Thursday, August 14 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The Alberta Magazine Publishers Association and the Uppercase Gallery are co-hosting Design Pairings – a free interactive networking event focusing on pairings: which typeface best suits an image.
“It’s a great event to attend in terms of networking,” says Anh Chu, communications and program assistant for AMPA. “There’s going to be a lot of people there who are interested in design: aspiring designers, people in the industry …and it’s a good way to get out of the office. Janine is thinking of doing a giant magazine that people can put together with her typography tools.”
Vangool has worked with the Calgary Opera, ACAD, Ottawa Art Gallery, TRUCK gallery, Art Central, Beyond Magazine and Whitecap Books. She also recently released Work Life, a compilation of Canadian illustration, photography and editorial design. Contact: www.uppercasegallery.ca
