‘Never-ending’ by Double Dagger

Double Dagger is a newly forged lettering collective of Alice Mazzilli and Karis Benjamin.

Double Dagger’s work for Type Tasting is inspired by a project they are working on at the moment which is about the multitude of words Shakespeare introduced in the English language, one of them being never-ending. Living in London, they felt this was the perfect word to capture the way things evolve around them in this city ever-changing and never-ending. Double Dagger is highly influenced by the urban environment, making their work part of it is essential, that’s why as most DD projects, ‘Never-ending’ was translated into a mural.
