Programme of Type Tasting events for the London Design Festival

ldf-programme

By Sarah Hyndman

Type Tasting founder Sarah is on a mission to make typography fun and engaging for everybody, not just designers. She specialises in making the complex topic accessible with originality, humour, a dash of theatre and lashings of audience participation. She delivers interactive talks and events with games and demonstrations that inform, entertain and challenge your preconceptions.

Sarah has created a programme of four exciting events for the London Design Festival this year. Each event takes a unique approach to exploring type: discover how it influences us as type consumers; create customised letterforms from different times in history; learn how to choose fonts and use type to communicate effectively; taste the connection between type and all your senses (whilst enjoying delicious wine).

Would you like us to host a wine & type tasting for your Christmas do? Find out more.
