Type Tasting at SXSW, Austin, Texas

Saturday March 8th
Type Tasting drop in workshops in which participants get creative to reinterpret letters inspired by streetsigns and signage from around the world. The variation of signage styles reflect social and historical development of typography in each region and will enable us to build up a visual representation of global typography trends.
