I spent a lot of my college days in and out of art galleries, thanks to my good friend Irena who was quite entrenched in the art scene there. I sort of fell out of touch with openings in general when I moved to Toronto though. 

That’s why I decided to join some of my fellow Proximity cohorts at Creative Type 3 to see what some talented Torontonian typographers had to offer.

The show itself was great, if not a little cramped. Some very clever, beautiful, meaningful and irreverent work was on display and a love of type was certainly felt through every piece. 

What I didn’t like were the hipsters and design snobs. Those guys ruin it for everyone.
