Workshops

Invest in your team’s continuing professional development with an activity-packed workshop or masterclass tailored to your needs. We can also create an exciting workshop to take place during a launch, event or festival. Type Tasting sessions empower entrepreneurs, inspire creativity with design thinking, and they equip communications teams and experienced designers with research-based resources. Type Tasting workshops have been created for adidas HQ, BBC, BumbleBizz, D&AD, Interbrand, Monotype, Springett’s, Virgin Active, Wellcome and WGSN.

TYPE & PERCEPTION

Investigate psychology and type perception in an activity-packed session away from the computer. Learn about theories with access to Type Tasting research not yet published, and understand how you can use this knowledge to better connect with and motivate your audience. Games, experiments, challenges and hands-on typographic explorations bring theories to life and invite you to be a part of the discovery process.
