Do you Judge a Wine by its Label?
Arrange a Wine & Type Tasting evening for your team and clients
By Sarah Hyndman

We will bring this innovative type and wine tasting, based on the sell-out success at the London Design Festival, to you for your team and clients. Take part in a series of activities and games that will delight and inform, in a relaxed and social setting.

What does the design of the label tell you about a product? How does this influence your expectations and even what you taste? Typography is not just visual; it conveys sound; it is tactile; it can smell of roses or coffee; and you know at a glance whether it is sour or sweet.

Learn about the science of taste and the senses; how design can influence what you drink; and ultimately whether the packaging is just there to inform you, or can it transform your experience?

The session includes results from exciting research Sarah Hyndman is currently involved in with the Crossmodal Research Laboratory, University of Oxford.
