How I fell in love with Type

The Inspiring Speakers Programme Gala Finale hosted by Ginger Training & Coaching

Wednesday 19th March 2014

Type Tasting founder Sarah Hyndman tells the story of how she fell in love with the magic of type as a child. She discovered along the way how it can be used to influence, and that its power to enchant and to inspire is something worth sharing.

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. Participants will each be provided with a simple template for a letter which they will customise using a range of markmaking and collage materials. The event will be eight hours long, but participants can drop in at any time.
