    Check out our eco-bag!

    Featured in the DECOB exhibit that opened in Toronto last night at Keep Six Contemporary Gallery.

    Hand Made Eco Bag Show – Eco-Bag / Eco-Life runs from June 26 - July 6, 2008

    Artists from around the world were invited to participate in this exhibition and asked to use cloth bags as a canvas to express their thoughts about global environmental issues. The hand-made eco-bag, Decorated Eco-Bag (aka DECOB) will be shown to international audiences in an effort to raise awareness of environmental issues and as a call to take active initiatives.

    Great idea, and some super fine bag designs came out of this! The show will be doing some international touring, be sure to check it out if it reaches your city. This exhibit will travel to the following cities: Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, London and New York

    All original works will be for sale.

    Also available limited edition print bags by artist Jade Rude,

    typotherapy+design, Keep Six Contemporary Gallery and the Festival of
    Architecture and Design invite you to

    MyType: An exhibit of limited-edition, new modernist posters by graphic design genius Noel Nanton.

    Exhibition dates: May 2 - May 18th. 2008

    Keep Six Contemporary Gallery - 938 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Canada

    Featuring new fonts designed by typotherapy, eye-popping popsicle colours, bold abstract shapes, and a very new take on classic modernist typography.

    Starting with the premise that typefaces are as expressive as the words they form, typotherapy has created a series of large-format posters that explore the relationship between positive and negative space. Letters speak, and if you remove them from the constraints of sentences and even words, they have a language of their own.

    MyType uses the craft of typography to find new ways of speaking
    using fonts famous and unknown including Helvetica, Avant Garde and
    typotherapy creations like Tomeri and VWmobile.
