The Bankside Design District will become a vibrant hub of typography and lettering for the London Design Festival this September. Type Tasting’s Type & Wine Tasting and What’s Your Type? workshops will be accompanied by a host of events from Better Letters and others. These include an intensive Hand Lettering Workshop from the inimitable Mike Meyer, a large Light Capsules x Ghostsigns projection and the launch of the new Bankside Ghostsigns Walk App.

Mike teamed up with the Brilliant Sign Co. and under their expert guidance we filled the Type Tasting studio with inky lettering.
