Thank you to everybody joined in with Type Tasting’s first year…
To all of you test pilots who threw yourselves into the unknown so enthusiastically, the brilliant volunteers, everybody who came along to the big public Type Tastings, or booked bespoke tastings for your organisations. To those of you who submitted such beautiful work for the exhibition at the V&A, and everybody who tweeted, blogged, reviewed and wrote about it. Thank you also for all the encouragement, enthusiasm, commissions, challenges and the invitations. Cheers! Sarah.
Type Tasting launched officially on Valentine’s Day 2013 with an evening of Typographic Swearing ‘n’ Cussing. By contrast 50 year six kids participated in a typographic tour of Hoxton Hall’s history in with Hackney Wow.
You’ve taken Type Safaris through Islington and Dalston, talking typography and booze making for a perfect combination. And at the busy workshop at Pick Me Up at Somerset House we created a wall of inventively customised letters which had great feedback.
The question ‘what’s the future of type?‘ prompted diverse responses on Twitter, in Design Week, Creative Review and at the event at the St Bride Library. The next event was Type Tasting with the London Design Festival at the V&A with stunning submissions for the exhibition.
