Design Week on the Pop-up Typography Emporium

Article from Design Week | Tue, 27 Nov 2012 | By Emily Gosling

Much as many of us would love to bury our heads in the ever-ebbing sands of time being counted down to Christmas, it may be time to face facts: the Johns Lewis ads are out, the lights are up, the panic is setting in. As Coca-Cola so brightly points out, the holidays are coming.

However, preparing for Christmas need not be all panic and despair at the ever-decreasing number of shopping days left. One such beacon that restores faith in the festivities is the Pop-up Typography Emporium, setting up shop in north London during the first weekend of December.

During the Olympics…

Posted in Exhibitions, Olympic Logo a Day project, Random Project, Sarah Hyndman, With Relish by Type Tasting on August 20, 2012

Recent months have been pretty busy with my focus on a couple of Olympics inspired projects during what has been such an exciting time to be living and working in London.

Random Project 2012
The Random Project 2012 is an undertaking I organise and curate which is encouraging mass creativity. It is open to everybody to participate in and as the year unfolds it is creating a documentary of 2012.

The summer exhibition was timed to coincide with the Olympic Games as a way everybody could join in and celebrate. This took place over two weeks at Rich Mix in East London and has had such a great response. The project will continue to the end of 2012 when the collection will be shown as a timeline of the year. Click here for a glimpse of the postcard wall at Rich Mix.

Olympic Logo a Day
This was a small, personal project of mine that took the blog and twittersphere by storm. In its last month the Olympic Logo a Day blog received nearly 35,000 views from over 120 countries. It gained international coverage and the surprise highlights were my being filmed by the BBC World Service and interviewed by the New York Times.

The Olympic Logo a Day blog has been written about in the New York Times, Blueprint magazine, Design Week, The Drum, Follow the Colours Brazil, Logo Design Love, Londonist, Creative Boom, Eye magazine, Dezeen, Handpicked London, Everything London, GQ, Jessica Ennis’ official website, Telegraph, Treehugger and the ‘alternative Olympic posters’ became the ‘top news story’ on Twitter in the week they were released…

More ideas are in the pipeline, I’ll keep you posted.

Design Week Voxpop

Posted in Press by Type Tasting on May 15, 2012

Last week I was asked to contribute to Design Week’s Voxpop:

What is your favourite example of an icon or pictogram-led design system?

The topical answer would be the Mexico 68 and Munich 72 Olympics pictograms. However I loved the classic Mac icons – happy mac, the watch, the simple trash can that got fat when it was full (remember Oscar the Grouch who was responsible for hard drives being trashed by kids? ), and the fear of that cartoon bomb. Simple and they were what they did. I’d be chuffed if the current operating system had classic mode as an appearance option, or as an iPhone app where it would be an interesting test to see which icons still work in pixelated black and white.
