This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Letterforms are no practical joking matter, but they can be fun.

With a first chance to see Wim Crouwel: A graphic odyssey, be inspired to graphically design your way around the museum.

Take part in hands on workshops and compile your own A is for alphabet compendium. M is for the usual myriad of things to do throughout the galleries including:

• Gallery tour of Wim Crouwel: A graphic odyssey with guest curator Tony Brook.

• Talks by Morag Myerscough describing recent projects and Vincent Connare chatting about Comic Sans.

• Workshops about letter forms from a greeting card designers perspective.

• Artists Kirsty Lyall and Helen Jones will be projecting typewriter art onto the side of the museum to encourage you to have a go.

• Live drawing by Sign writer Ray Howell who will be spelling out DESIGN MUSEUM in abnormal proportion.

  • 6pm-10pm
  • £7.50 in advance or £11 on the door
