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.
It was a weekend of talking typography with four Type Tasting talks, three of which were sold out ahead of time. The talks were 45 minutes with slides, props and quizzes which revealed how typography evokes associations long before the words have been read. For those of you who came along thank you for being so interactive and for asking great questions, the links and references are below.
On Saturday Sarah Hyndman shared her observations on the typography seen in Dalston, London, and explained what this reveals about the area and how signage is the visual DNA of an area.
“Thank you for the very enjoyable Dalston Type Safari talk on Saturday. A unique & interesting way to ‘read’ the city.” Sophie Nellis
