Take part in a Type Tasting creative typography workshop at Cass Art Islington hosted by Type Tasting founder Sarah Hyndman. Get away from the computer to get your hands dirty experimenting with typography and exploring its expressive qualities. We will explore the topic of ‘creative London’ through typography, mark making and materials. At the end of the session you are invited to submit your work to be considered for inclusion in Type Tasting with the London Design Festival at the V&A.

#LDF13: ‘Home’ by Caspian Ievers
Caspian Ievers lives in Wellington, New Zealand. He is originally from the UK and ‘Home’ is about his Mum’s cooking and going to visit her. He photographed all the stages he went through to create the letters—from his home baking to enjoying the jam laden scone with a cup of tea (below).
The distance Ievers lives from London was emphasised as he created the letters on Sunday. He explained that it was an eventful day “with more earthquakes than you’d ever want in a day including a 6.5 not that far away which made the shoot a bit unusual, no damage here just plenty of diving under the table.”

Workshop: How running makes me feel
An afternoon workshop about how running makes you feel, led by Sarah Hyndman. The participants brainstormed words and phrases about how running makes them feel. They then recreated the words in a way that visually represented what the word means.

Workshop: Typographic Swearing ’n’ Cussing
An antidote to all the over-the-top sentimentality that has become Valentine’s Day.
Learn about the history of typographic protest, and how a typeface can subvert a word. Explore different types of swearing, from random streams of consciousness, visual onomatopoeia, to absurd phrases and aimed verbal tirades. Create your own typographic profanities in a social setting with good conversation.
