TYPE KITA 3: PASS ON THE PASSION

rsz_1mbp_pinkOn December 12 and 13, type lovers and lettering enthusiasts will be in for a treat! The team behind Type Kita will be holding the 3rd installment of their annual typography exhibit! The previous Type Kita exhibits offered visitors with an incredible showcase of local typographic art pieces, on-the-spot workshops by some of the country’s well-known hand-letterers and calligraphers, and for the bargain hunters, a slew of handmade crafts and printed goods from local entrepreneurs.

Collaborate[1]

The 3rd Type Kita exhibit promises to be even bigger than before, with over 60 participating exhibitors and artists sharing their talent for this event-for-a-cause.

Set during the holiday season, the Type Kita Exhibit will serve as a big Christmas gathering for type enthusiasts around the metro! With live art, demos, art trade and gift giving activities, it’s the perfect holiday feast for type lovers!

Dates[1]

With the theme “Pass on the Passion,” the event aims to foster camaraderie and to strengthen the local type community during the Christmas season by focusing on the value of collaboration and sharing! With this event, type-enthusiasts can give back to the community and share their passion to others as well. Proceeds from the event will be for the benefit of PEARLS- a non-profit organization that aims to provide unprivileged kids with Peace, Education, Aspiration, Respect, Love & Smiles.

 

Activities for the event are as follows:

PASS ON THE PASSION EXHIBIT

For this leg, exhibitors are encouraged to work and collaborate with other artists to share their talent and trade skills as they develop their pieces, strengthening the idea of sharing one’s passion through art.

ART TRADE/ TOOL SWAP 

Art Trade Manila will lead an art-exchange activity where artists and guests can bring their works or writing tools and trade it with fellow type-enthusiasts. It’s like a massive exchange gift activity but more fun!

LIVE ART

Some of your favorite local letterers will also be invited to paint on wooden panels as part of the live art exhibit. Glass panels will also serve as a big doodle wall canvas!

Share[1]

And because the venue will be bigger, Zig Philippines will also be displaying large scale art murals as part of the exhibit.

INSTAGRAM EXCHANGE

Type Kita exhibits are also the best place to build your network with fellow type-geeks! To further promote camaraderie, participants will be given name tags for their IG handles so they can easily follow each other and keep connected even after the event!

GIFT AND CARD DRIVE

One portion of the event will allow guests to write Christmas cards, design covers of blank notebooks and leave behind hand-lettered pieces as part of gift kits for the kids of PROJECT PEARLS.

LIVE DEMOS AND ACTIVITIES

Pass on the passion for type with free demos such as lettering, calligraphy, watercolor lettering and many more! There will also be a scheduled film showing, some live art & for the hoarders, there will also be pop-up shops for tools and type merchandise.

CHRISTMAS POTLUCK

To keep the Christmas spirit alive, they will be holding a simple get-together/Christmas potluck to celebrate the community this holiday season. You may bring food and drinks too if you want to join in the feast!

A Week in the Life of a Mommy Blogger

rsz_1mbp_pinkA week is never the same for this mommy blogger. For one, this week is the post-exam week for kiddos and next week, we will welcome the long-awaited school break. This means a breather from tutorial sessions, and time for me to set up lots and lots of activities my kids can do while they are home. My eldest also welcomes the break from Science High School weekend review classes he has been attending (since May!). Ever careful not to make projects out of my kids, taking the sembreak for a slower and leisurely pace at home.

Much to my fun and amazement, my mommy blogger self was also in for a treat, as Lazada has gathered select blogger affiliates for the launch of Lazada’s biggest online affiliate competition, Affiliate Online Revolution. Ever-generous Lazada let us in on treats and surprises for all bloggers, SEO practitioners, online store owners, community managers, social media influencers and digital marketers who were present for the night at Best Western Antel Hotel.

Learned a lot from Speaker Mannix Pabalan and from Maldive Sponsors

Another highlight for the week was this year’s Blogapalooza Seasons 2015. Partner booths were set up that included a long list of blogger perks for everyone present to take home. Also learned a lot from the bloggers forum where bloggers’ etiquette was discussed and reinforced for all attendees. Highly appreciate and thanking Blogapalooza Community for staging a lesson-filled event this year held at One Esplanade. More than the freebies and partners’ giveaways, went home with more learnings I will apply on my next posts.

2015-10-26 19.32.38To cap my day, dropped by Freeway to make good use of the gifts I got from writing about Stylist in Pocket (Freeway, Ensemble and Solo). I was so engaged after writing about Stylist in Pocket that I got my friends from work to try it, too.

Overall, it was a week to thank God for, also because ultimately, I got to spend the week with the best people from home, from my workplace, and from friendships around me.
