Words about creative London using inventive typography and lettering designed to reflect the meaning of each word. These have been created by people ranging from Ralph Steadman and Alan Kitching to school children.
The collection will grow during drop in workshops to be held on 14 & 15 September.

Read the Type Tasting with the LDF newspaper complete with inky Ralph Steadman print on the cover:

London = Typographic. Words about creative London that have been designed to reflect their meaning. This is through choice of typeface, mark making tools, incorporating unusual materials and inventing new letterforms. The words on display have been created by a wide range of people from Ralph Steadman and Alan Kitching to school kids. These will be displayed in the Design Studio at the London Design Festival’s hub at the V&A. We’ll be running drop in Type Tasting workshops during the graphics weekend on 14 & 15 September in which everybody is invited to create words which will be added to the growing exhibition. The workshops during the London Design Festival are free to attend and open to everybody to take part in, no previous creative experience is necessary.

Type Tasting is organised and curated by graphic designer Sarah Hyndman. Type Tastings are typography workshops and type safaris—typography training with a creative twist.
