LDF is back this week and there is plenty for typography, lettering and sign fans to get stuck into. Here's what's on our to do list:
South East Makers Club 2018
First up we are extremely proud to be a partner and support this year’s South East Makers Club as part of London Design Festival. SEMC18 is a celebration of South East London's creative talent, and takes place at Deptford Market Yard from 14th - 16th September. The line up includes exhibitions, installations and workshops as well as a makers market and the infamous designer pub quiz, for details and the full line up follow the link
London’s Other Side
Bankside is a district that has experienced constant reinvention. For centuries it welcomed those with a rebellious and independent spirit. Better Bankside, in collaboration with NB Studio, is flying 60 flags created by some of Bankside’s and London’s leading artists and designers to celebrate its independent state. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the flags hung in Jubilee Place at Borough Market for LDF, before they are proudly flown throughout the area. After the Festival, one set of flags will be auctioned to raise money for Better Bankside’s three community partners who do great work in the local area.
Back at the London Design Festival for a fourth year in a row, Better Letters is bringing free screenings and two ticketed signwriting workshops to the Bankside Design District. Get inspired by the stories of three retired signwriters at a triple bill screening, and then get your hands dirty with a beginner’s workshop in Borough Market. For ticket information and timings see link below.
Type Tasting is back in Bankside with a series of exciting and immersive events that break the rules of traditional wine and gin tastings as well as a pop up typography lab. For more information follow the link below.
Alphabet by Kellenberger-White
Known for their playful approach to typefaces, Kellenberger–White has designed a new series of alphabet chairs as a Landmark Project at Broadgate, supported by Festival Headline Partner British Land.
