The pop-up will be back for two days in the Type Tasting studio as part of Winter Open Studios at the Chocolate Factory N16. There will be a range of things type and letter related including glow-in-the-dark neon letter prints, screen printed Dalston posters, framed initials, signage art and more. Consult with the great Zoltar for your Type Tasting Font Fortune.

In the week since Type Tasting’s Sarah Hyndman sounded exuberant about typography in the FT Weekend Magazine, and completely bonkers on CNN, the Tested on Humans surveys have received well over 18,000 new responses. The Type Dating Game and Font Fortunes have proved to be the most popular, followed closely by the quick Type & Emotions quiz. Click on any of the images if you’d like to have a go. Consult with the great Zoltar to receive your Font Fortune during Open Studios at the Chocolate Factory N16 on December 6th and 7th, sign up to the Type Tasting mailing list for news.
A couple of recent interviews I’ve given have been published. The one with Jake from CNN was especially fun as he came to the studio and had a play with the props and demos: yes he really did come to Hackney and sniff fonts.
Join graphic designer Sarah Hyndman for an interactive Type Tasting talk full of demonstrations about how typefaces influence what we read. The audience will have the opportunity to take part in Sarah’s ongoing research into typeface associations. Find out more…
