V&A Museum - Friday Lates - What the font

In November I was invited by the Friday Late team at the V&A to take part in one of their monthly late night events, dedicated on this occasion to typography.


People were encouraged to come and join me for half an hour to experiment with some hand-lettering and typography and then design their own temporary tattoo design. We scanned the drawings and printed them onto special tattoo transfer paper before applying them straight onto people in the Typo Tattoo Studio booth.

For those who didn't want to design a tattoo for themselves I had a selection of specially designed tattoo flash available to choose from.

We made over 120 tattoos on the evening for 4 over subscribed sessions and had heaps of fun seeing what everyone designed.
