Typographic life drawing and a journey through history
The typefaces and lettering styles found on the high street tells you a great deal about the social and historic development of an area, creating its own typographic DNA. Taking a closer look gives clues that can reveal the stories that make an area unique.
Type Tasting founder Sarah ran regular Type Safaris through Dalston in East London for five years, complete with themed snacks, props and quiz prizes. She has also led a type safari through record covers, and a tour of the drinks labels found in a pub.
Sarah now applies this successful formula to experiences and talks as she immerses you in an interactive journey through history.
