Take a refreshing journey through gin and typography with extras to smell along the way.
Discover how the stories of gin and type are inextricably entwined through trade routes, continental rivalries, the tumultuous history of printing and how both reflect changing cultural tastes.
Explore the storytelling typography of gin labels. From the logos of the mainstream classics to the new small batch gins that have clues to their provenance hidden in the letterforms.
When you book you’ll receive a list of easy-to-source items that will bring the scent of the journey to life and stimulate your taste buds.
Hello, I'm Sarah. I'm the author of a number of books including 'Why Fonts Matter' and 'How to Draw Type and Influence People'. I'm a TEDx speaker, a regular guest on BBC Radio 4 and I sometimes appear on TV on shows like Channel 4's Sunday Brunch.
I make typography exciting for everybody, not just experts. Have you ever wondered whether you judge a shop or pub by its sign? Or why you judge a bottle by its label? Over the last seven years, I've welcomed thousands of people to my events and workshops. Now I'm excited that I can bring these experiences directly to you wherever you are in the world.
Recent Zoom guests have said “The event is genius”, “you are such an amazing storyteller!” and “That was fun. Whoever woulda’ thought that I could be eating granola in Portland Oregon while visiting London?”
