After a successful run of workshops and screenings, it was nice to organize a night where everyone could come together and catch-up. We had hoped to experience our first Ligatures meeting on a patio somewhere but alas, the weather made it a little too chilly. That being said, we secured a nice spot at the back of O’Grady’s Tap & Grill.
It was lovely to see some old and new faces at the show and tell. It was even better to get a peak at what everyone had been working on. Wow! There was some very impressive stuff being shown! From wedding invites to typefaces in the making, it was great to share and give insight into the work being shown. If you looked at our area of the bar, it was evident that little groups were forming and discussing various projects and events. Every so often, people would get up, shift around, and a new topic would emerge. This is what Ligatures is about and it was wonderful to see it in action.
Seeing everyone gather was also a great opportunity to share some of the exciting things that the crew at Ligatures has been working on. It was the first time we had debuted our “We Totes Love Type” bags – what a success! We even had a few sales! As many of you know, we like to do little giveaways at the end of the meeting, and Ligatures regular Sarah Davies won her very own tote bag. Enjoy!
We also brought along our new business cards! If you haven’t seen them, check them out on Chris’ blog post. If anyone grabbed a few at the meeting, please feel free to give them away and spread the Ligatures love!
It was also a great platform to mention that we’re working on a brush workshop – hosted by our very own Chris Rouleau & Kyle Gallant. This would be a fantastic workshop to participate in and we’ll post more details once the event gets finalized. We’ve also been looking into screening the Sign Painters film. Exciting!
A very big thank-you to everyone that came out to the meeting – it was great to see everyone. We look forward to seeing you again next month!
As always, thanks for the support in making Ligatures grow bigger and better.
