Swash & Serif is a typography and lettering art show organized and curated by the people behind Ligatures and the Toronto Design Directory. The first show opened in November 2014 with 40 accepted artists, and since then has grown to include more artwork and artists, reaching even as far away as New Brunswick and California.
Swash & Serif is currently the only show of it's kind in Toronto, and a great opportunity for designers, letterers and artists to showcase their work publicly and meet fellow creatives and fans. There aren't many design shows in our city - as opposed to the myriad art shows that grace Queen West, Dundas West and others - and we're excited to offer designers a chance to participate in this kind of social event.
Toronto is filled with very talented designers and letterers and we see Swash & Serif as a tool to expose these people to a wider audience. We're growing the show as we go, and we hope you'll be a part of it.
