Type Tasting Global Lettering Typography Workshop at SXSW Austin, Texas
London based designer Sarah Hyndman is taking her Type Tasting venture to the US next week. She’s running a day long ‘Global Lettering Workshop’ at South by Southwest (SXSW) on Saturday March 8th.
One week to go until the Type Tasting Workshop at South by Southwest Interactive in Austin, Texas. Here’s a movie to give you a glimpse of what I’m taking part in, and I’ll be Tweeting (@TypeTasting) my adventures while I’m there.
It’s just two weeks until South by Southwest Interactive starts, described as a “massive festival, bringing together the brightest minds in digital media, technology, journalism, health, film, space, business, gaming and more, with hundreds of sessions, parties and meetups spread across dozens of venues around Austin.”
On the road: The Art Deco Lark Cinema, Larkspur, California USA / Big Display Sans Serifs visible from a distance at the Billabong Roadhouse, Western Australia / Eurostyle & a Condensed Sans Serif on the 1950s style Antiques sign at Barbie’s Coffee Shop, Three Rivers, California USA / Casual Script and Slab Serifs at the Edgewater Inn, Pismo Beach, California USA…
“Get creative whilst exploring and reinterpreting the typography found in street signs and signage from around the world.” We’re expanding on the Dalston Reimagined idea from last summer and take it global. Are there patterns to be found on a larger scale, what does the signage reveal about an area, a city or a country when compared?
