Celebrating five years of Type Tasting


Type Tasting creates experiential learning scenarios designed to entertain and ignite curiosity through type and all the senses. Participants are immersed in the discovery process with experiments, activities and tastings designed to be thought-provoking. Everything is dished up with fun and a theatrical twist. Founded by graphic designer Sarah Hyndman in 2013, deliverables include interactive talks, immersive events, activity-packed workshops, and mass-participation creativity events.

Type Tasting launched on 14th February 2013. Since then we've had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with so many amazing people, to work with forward-thinking and dynamic organisations, and to be a part of exciting events around the world. A huge thank you to everybody who’s taken part.

To celebrate five years of typographic adventures we have 10 prize giveaway packs of signed books and goodies, one pack will be given away each day. Questions (or where to find the question) can be found each day on Instagram or Twitter #TypeTasting5years, and there are clues to help you answer in the links below.
