Type Tasting at the V&A - Live Lettering

 "Lets do some type" - Live lettering

 "Lets do some type" - Live lettering

So if you checked out my last post on here then you'll know that last weekend I had the pleasure of doing some of my trademark lettering 'live' at the V&A for Type Tasting as part of the London Design Festival 2013.

It was a really busy day and loads of people dropped by to say hello and get stuck in doing some lettering of their own.

I was kept pretty busy lettering various comments and phrases - some that popped into my head and some that I heard people in the room saying.

My favourite of the day was this piece - Something I heard from a girl named Hema - who also made the same word for her Type Tasting contribution

The collection of submitted words for the exhibition are on display in the Sackler Centre at the V&A until Friday.
