Multi-sensory Tastings for Stokey Lit Fest

Billetto image tasting600x400

The Stoke Newington Literary Festival is an exciting event which celebrates this area in Hackney, London’s radical and literary history. I’m delighted that this is the second year Type Tasting will be involved. Join me for a ‘Taster’ in the studio where I will invite you to play some classic Type Tasting games.

Type Tasting ‘Taster’
Have you ever wondered what a font might smell like? Which font would you pair with each type of chocolate? What does your choice of font says about your personality?

Join one of the UK’s most innovative type experts Sarah Hyndman of experiential type studio Type Tasting to explore a series of multi-sensory games with type, have your say in the font personality census, find out which typefaces you would date, ditch or be ‘just good friends’ with and at the end you’ll receive a Font Fortune goody bag.

“Walking into the Type Tasting studio was like walking into a mad scientist’s lab” Robert Boick

“As bizarre as it sounds, my job is to match up the bottles and fonts using only my sense of smell.” Jake Wallis Simons, CNN (click to read)

“You’ll never look at fonts in the same way again.” Hannah Stewart
