Description


Type Tuesday: Activists in Ink

St Bride Foundation, Tuesday 8 March 2022 in the Bridewell Hall 7-9.30pm

Please come to our first in-person Type Tuesday since March 2020. Joining us will be three special guests: reportage illustrator Lucinda Rogers; graphic designer Greg Bunbury; and poet, activist and letterpress artist Dennis Gould. 

We will begin the evening with presentation from Lucinda Rogers on her reportage drawings from COP26 in Glasgow. She recently collated her illustrative observations into Around the edge of COP26, a publication documenting the activists, delegates, panels, speeches, protests, as well as the general mood throughout and following the summit. Lucinda will also be joined by Kevin Wilson, editorial creative director at Financial Times, to discuss the use of reportage illustration in newspapers

After Lucinda, we will feature a presentation by graphic designer Greg Bunbury, who founded the Black Outdoor Art project in 2020 and 2021 (in partnership with outdoor agency Brotherhood Media), which uses donated billboard space as a platform for other Black British designers. Greg will also talk about his type designs (including the all-caps display typefaces Empire Windrush and Bradford ’81) and his work for clients in publishing, music and hospitality.

We will also be screening a short documentary entitled The Last Cuckoo: Dennis Gould, by British filmmaker and designer Mark Chaudoir. This is an intimate portrait of poet and printmaker Dennis Gould, capturing his love for activism, letterpress, wood type, cycling, football and life in general – it’s a highly enjoyable film, and Mark and Dennis will be on hand to chat about it.

Copies of Around the edge of COP26 and a selection of Dennis Gould’s letterpress works – plus current and bargain back issues of Eye – will be available for sale in the Farringdon Room next to Bridewell Hall. There will also be a small bar where you can buy beers, wines and soft drinks.
