Type Tasting

‘Hidden messages in London’s typography’ was a roaring success when it launched at Soho House recently. Due to popular demand it will now run on an occasional basis from the ephemera-filled Type Tasting studio in our old Victorian chocolate factory on the edge of Dalston in London.

Discover the evocative story of London street signs and what they communicate to us, often on a subconscious level. Join me for a joyous and activity-filled session in the Type Tasting studio exploring London’s letterforms and street signs as you uncover their hidden messages. This is an enchanting introduction that gives you insider-knowledge of the London environment, and is a fun way to discover why typography is so exciting.Duration 2.5 hours. £65, earlybird tickets £55.
