10am - 5.45 Monday - Sunday

Free Event

Supported by Pentagram




Gallery 55 has been transformed for 8-18, a bold floor-to-ceiling graphic installation celebrating the 2D typography-led magazine titled Circular. Domenic Lippa, Partner at world-renowned design studio Pentagram has been designing the award-winning Circular magazine...

...since 1999 and describes the practice as a ‘labour of love’ - combining his interest in both typography and magazine design. Issues 8 - 18 have no set style or consistency; each issue is designed from scratch and is totally unique.

“ I’ve been working on Circular for 15 years now, which is unique in itself, but what I’ve most enjoyed is that each issue has a distinct and experimental execution.”
Domenic Lippa

The Typographic Circle is a not-for-profit organisation, run entirely by volunteers. It was formed in 1976 to bring together anyone with an interest in type and typography and has since attracted some of the most highly acclaimed names in graphic design including Vince Frost, Stefan Sagmeister, Alan Fletcher, North, Tom Hingston and Spin.
