Type Tasting Events

We’re all starting to look forward again as we plan our way in a very changed world. At first, I really missed seeing everybody but I’m constantly amazed by how adaptable humans are as we find new ways to interact.

Many of you have been brilliant guests on the new Type Safaris. The format is a tour followed by a short pub quiz at the end and I love that guests are joining from around the world. I can also take you back in time to see wonderful signs that have long since vanished. The winners are awarded a virtual certificate and the title of champion type spotter. Click on a link below to book yourself a place and please invite your friends.

There are two routes to choose from, each is a stand alone event although most people have come along to both.

The new 10am tour has been added so that those of you in Australia and New Zealand can join me.

Creative Lockdown Project: Letter hunt

This week’s challenge comes from Heidi Robinson of TGSA Creative Arts & Design technology, who also took all the photos above.

These challenges are designed to be a bit of fun and to document our time collectively spent in lockdown. Please share it with friends and post your final results on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. If you also tag #TypeTasting I’ll be sharing some of the results.

To find an alphabet in your home by taking photos of familiar objects that are cropped in interesting or unusual ways. Combine the letters to make the whole alphabet and why not challenge your friends to do the same so that you can all compare?

Share your finished project on social media with #CreativeLockdownProject. Tag #TypeTasting as I’ll be sharing some of the results.


Have a happy Thursday,
