It's been so long since anyone piped up in here. Almost 3 years. How about that?

Hi! My name is Jason and I live in Cupertino.

Bumping up this thread to say... I live in Oakland, and work from my apartment. I've been thinking of organizing a typophile walk around the Oakland-Piedmont Cemetery - it's a wealth of beautiful old lettering.

So, since so many of us are not far from each other, we should throw a party or mini convention or something like that.

Nice. Old threads are fun. I live here too! As a matter of fact I used to live right next to Stephen and we didn't even know. Well, 3 years ago we didn't know it at least. You know Tiffany, now that you live you will have to actually see more of us. Being in San Jose in no excuse.

I couldn’t resist — after TypeCon2004 in SF, I had to move to the Bay Area. This native Oregonian is now living in the East Bay, in the lovely little town of Alameda.

Does it count if my mind and heart are in SF, though physically in the Great White North?

Might as well throw my name into the mix. I’m currently at the very edge of what can rightfully be considered the San Francisco Bay Area, in Benicia. However, it looks like I’m probably going to be moving back to Berkeley early next summer.

Alejandro,

I recommend wandering through the Mission district and Upper Haight. Both have very rich, visual stimuli and there are some fantastic opportunities for found type photography

Alejandro,

Check out William Stout Architectural Books on Jackson and Montgomery. They have a great design selection downstairs, as well as a typography section.

SFMOMA’s bookstore as an interesting selection of overpriced design books as well.

The San Francisco AIGA is sponsoring a number of design events between now and your departure, including a presentation tomorrow night by Mark Fox. More info at aigasf.org.

I’ll be there, so if you go be sure to introduce yourself and I’ll make sure to help you meet some people.

Best,


Christopher

Some parts of both the Mission and Haight can be sketchy, but personally I have never felt unsafe, though that could just be me, I’ve always been pretty gutsy about walking around late on my own. You are going to see your fair share of panhandlers and such

Alejandro,

in the Mission district, check out Dog-Eared Books, on the corner of Valencia Street and 20th Street… they sometimes have used books on graphic design and type, plus plenty of underground comic books with great examples of lettering… there are other bookstores in that neighborhood , but don’t miss this one.

Enjoy SF!

Hi, I’m a design student here in SF. Check out www.lucidboy.com , we occasionally have workshops to teach each other different aspects of design. I also try to stay on top of the local design events.
