Type Kita Exhibit

The Type Kita exhibit is probably one of my favorite 2014 projects. Although calligraphy and lettering are challenging for me - I grew up not liking my penmanship and there are even times when I don't understand it myself - I knew I'd regret it if I had passed up this opportunity.

I had five exhibited works. The Ti Ayat Ti Maysa Nga Ubing papercut, How to Grow an Alphabet rubbercut set, two How to Grow an Alphabet prints, and Bugtong Bugtong papercut coaster set.

I only made 10 prints of this rubbercut set, plus this tote bag I hand-stamped on which I'll keep and will serve as a keepsake when all the prints are sold.

In the coming months, these papercut coasters will travel to different cities, cafes, and homes to convince you to put down that phone and reacquaint you to "bugtong". This is also the reason why they're not (yet) for sale. But thanks to those who were interested in buying them. :)

Alessa and I had a stamping station. We even met someone who already had a copy of our Candy DIY book!

Another thing I liked about this event is that the organizers, Maan and Roma, prepared other activities people would enjoy.

There was a film showing about typography and calligraphy:

A master in jeepney signage making, mang Ronald had his own station where people could have pieces commissioned:
