V&A Friday Late Font

On Friday 28th November Dalton Maag took up residence at the V&A museum’s ‘Friday Late – What the Font’ event, a curated evening of workshops, talks, installations, performances and music. We ran a workshop that provided people with a chance to get their hands dirty, play with colour and form and contribute to the creation of the V&A Friday Late Font.

With guidance from some of Dalton Maag’s expert font design team, members of the public constructed and designed letterforms from random objects and by printing with modular wood blocks. The resulting characters were photographed, engineered by Dalton Maag and a functional typeface was created in real time. The end result is a large collaborative font with a unique sense of character.
