Workshop: Kit type
Combining two simple shapes will give you the foundations to create your own unique alphabet. Take away your own type sampler at the end of the session. This is a playful, creative session which takes place without the aid of a computer.
Participants receive printouts of two different shapes, for example a circle and a square. During the session the shapes are combined to create a unique alphabet.

“It led to a more playful way of seeing type for me, and added to my already illustrative stye of typography.”
