Type Walk – June 2023

June's Type Walk with Zenab Bastawala (@sign_walker) is on June 9th, from 5-6pm!

️ ⁠ Rediscover the lost art of custom lettering of the 60s, 70s & 80s era record labels by visiting local record shops. All participants will receive a nostalgic sticker collection of lettering styles from the 60, 70 & 80's eras.

What might we discover? Stylistic lettering that highlights this era's unique characteristics, including craggy fonts that look hewn from rock to type with bullet holes or made from rope.

Event: Meet at Congress Square Park — look for a yellow AIGA flag buntee. The event is happening rain or shine; walking shoes are recommended.

Typefaces in use: Quirkwood, Doublebass, Droog heavy, Crayonette, Groupie, Megazoid, Usurp, Ohm (Adobe Type Network).


NOTE: Re-scheduled from 6/2/2023 to 6/9/2023.
