For those saddened by disappearing print media, I’ve got some exciting news — Janine Vangool and Deidre Martin over at UPPERCASE Gallery in Calgary are launching a new quarterly magazine this Spring called UPPERCASE, “a magazine for the creative and curious.”
I stumbled upon UPPERCASE recently when I was hunting on the web for books about typeface (watching Helvetica had really gotten me interested!) and I found Ellen Lupton’s Thinking with Type, a Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Editors, & Students there.
Here’s a little bit about UPPERCASE from their website:
“We’re inquisitive: learning from other artists, illustrators, designers, photographers, filmmakers and musicians, whether they’re upstarts or icons, famous or shy, verbal or visual.
We’re inspired: enchanted by great ideas and strange inventions; by colour and pattern; things fancy and frugal; the charm of vintage in a modern life; the ridiculous and the sublime.
We’re adventurous: traveling to destinations both real and imagined, peeking into creative spaces and discovering magnificent people and memorable places.
We’re eclectic: curating souvenirs, collecting treasures and celebrating the extraordinary in the everyday.
We’re playful: delighting in visual amusements, intelligent distraction, entertaining wordplay and sweet indulgences.
We’re UPPERCASE: a magazine for the creative and curious!”
