Type Tasting Launch evening

Social workshop


Type Tasting launched on Valentine’s Day 2013 with a boozy evening of Typographic Swearing ’n’ Cussing—an antidote to the over-the-top commercial sentimentality that has become Valentine’s Day.

Our aim at Type Tasting is to show that typography does not have to be treated with too much reverence; it can be expressive, rebellious and breaking the rules is fun.

Participants took a journey through the history of typographic protest, seeing how a typeface can subvert a word or create a movement. They explored different types of swearing, from random streams of consciousness, visual onomatopoeia, to absurd phrases and aimed verbal tirades, and created their own typographic profanities in a social setting with good conversation.
