AIGA Reno/Tahoe invites you to explore the typography of Reno’s MidTown at the second annual TypeWalk. The goal is to search out, spot and take photos of the very best 26 letters of the alphabet represented in paint, print or in the glowing lights of Reno's MidTown neighborhood. The goal is to have the most unique photos in your creative search of the perfect j, q or b.
The best will be chosen for the second annual TypeWalk commemorative poster. The Typewalk is a collaborative event. Create a team of two or we’ll team you up with someone for some urban spelunking.
This year's start point is Craft, located at 22 Martin Street on the corner of South Virginia. Plan to be there and signed in by 7:30pm. Don't forget to bring some cash as we'll be grabbing a bite from Kenji's Food Truck around 9pm. All participants will reconvene at the Reno Public House between 10:30pm-11pm to view the slideshow from the evening and grab a night cap!
Registration for the event begins June 1, 2012. For more information visit RENOTAHOE.AIGA.ORG.
On July 19, you will receive your map and directions via email.
Socialize! Tweet or instagram your findings before, during and after the event! Type is everywhere, start looking. #typewalk @aigarenotahoe @aigadesign
