Typography : my way to typography : retrospective in ten sections

Monday, 26 September, 2016

@TitleSince the 1970s Wolfgang Weingart has exerted a decisive influence on the international development of typography. In the late 1960s he instilled creativity and a desire for experimentation into the ossified Swiss typographical industry and reflected this renewal in his own work. Countless designers have been inspired by his teaching at the Basle School of Design and by his lectures. In Typography Weingart gives an unusual and frank narrative of his early life and development as a designer. For the first time he gives a comprehensive survey of his works over the past forty years, most of which are unknown.

Adopting animals from the Winnipeg Humane Society a 'win-win'

Monday, September 26, 2016

I woke the other morning to a male nibbling my earlobe. But no, this isn't that kind of article. It was Bert, a fluffy black kitten whom I'm fostering along with his cohort Chantal. As with most things in my life, our meeting was a coincidence. A friend couldn't foster them, so she suggested I do the honours.  Signing up to foster for the Winnipeg Humane Society is likely the easiest thing I've done.
