Janine Vangool, a respected designer and art gallery and shop owner, will be giving a talk and offering design feedback at the Uppercase Gallery in Calgary on Thursday, August 14 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The Alberta Magazine Publishers Association (AMPA) 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, etc. …and it’s a good way to get out of the office. It should be a fun night with games. 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 compiled Work Life, a directory of Canadian illustration and photography featuring the lives of artistic professionals.
