I’m looking forward to an exciting couple of weeks in Austin, Texas leaving next week. I’m honoured to be presenting a short talk on Saturday March 14th and then I get to spend the rest of the time being curious and inspired by the unfolding themes and ideas, many of which will be influencing us tomorrow. It’s an amazing event to be a part of so I’m delighted to be going back and it’s going to be great to meet up with the friends I made last time.
Shreyansh Agarwal sent in this lovely animation with request to be considered for work experience. Type Tasting isn’t yet at a stage where work placements are possible, but his application caught our attention because he’d clearly researched what we do before getting in touch and had crafted an email tailored to us.

We are surrounded by fonts in our everyday lives and we use them to navigate our environment, understanding instinctively that they communicate a great deal of the information before we’ve even read the words. We choose typefaces to express our personal style or to demonstrate our allegiance to a philosophy, music style or band.
