(SPOT.ph) Typography your type? Join the first ever type-conference in the country: Type Lab MNL. It's a two-day event that showcases prominent talents in the fields of type-illustration, lettering, and calligraphy, and it's happening on July 4 and 5, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Roof Deck Events Center, Century City Mall, Makati City. The featured speakers, like Abbey Sy, Fozzy Castro-Dayrit, and Jelvin Base, specialize in different lettering styles and techniques.
Pop-up shops will also cater to every type-lover out there. Shop from local sellers like The Craft Central, Sunday Paper, Filed, Ella Lama, Pluma, Swirls & Strokes, among others. You'll even get to see how a vintage letterpress works. There will also be a pen-meet area (with materials care of Zig and Stabilo) where you get to doodle and scribble while meeting other typography enthusiasts. Finally, an exhibit will show the works and creations of the local type community.
