Celebrating five years of Type Tasting

Type Tasting creates experiential learning scenarios designed to entertain and ignite curiosity through type and all the senses. Participants are immersed in the discovery process with experiments, activities and tastings designed to be thought-provoking. Everything is dished up with fun and a theatrical twist. Founded by graphic designer Sarah Hyndman in 2013, deliverables include interactive talks, immersive events, activity-packed workshops, and mass-participation creativity events.

Type Tasting launched on 14th February 2013. Since then we’ve had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with so many amazing people, to work with forward-thinking and dynamic organisations, and to be a part of exciting events around the world. A huge thank you to everybody who’s taken part.

To celebrate five years of typographic adventures we gave away 10 prize packs of signed books and goodies, one pack was given away each day. Questions were posted each day on Instagram or Twitter #TypeTasting5years.

10 prize giveaway packs of signed books and goodies were up for grabs to celebrate five years of Type Tasting. One pack was given away each day, each prize pack contained a selection of typographic goodies that took the theme of that day’s question. Prizes included signed books by Sarah Hyndman (including exclusive copies of the out-of-print first edition of The Type Taster). Special prizes included tickets to one of the last ever public N16 Ghostsigns tours, goodies from Monotype, a pair of tickets to the fantastic Museum of Brands and a voucher for Laithwaite's wine.


Thank you for taking part in the five-year anniversary prize giveaway, the competition has now ended.
