In celebration of the official launch of Why Fonts Matter in the US today: Creative Review ran a piece on the pop-up Type Tasting at the V&A for the London Design Festival. “Type Tasting’s series of multisensory experiments, for me, turned typography on its head.” Natalie Kelter

A glimpse of the Type Tasting at the V&A for the London Design Festival at the weekend in photos. Thank you to the team of brilliant volunteers and to everybody who came along and threw themselves into the games and experiments exploring the influence of different typefaces and fonts so wholeheartedly. We estimate around 500 of you visited during the two three-hour sessions and we now have lots of research data to tally up. You can still take part in a selection of the games and experiments online if you click here.
Meet some of the Type Tasting team who will be taking you through the games and experiments live at the V&A for the London Design Festival on the 19th and 20th September. Find out more about the event here. Here we showcase the work of freelance designer and writer Zara Arshad and volunteer Eugenie Smit.
