Type hunt

Design Festival HQ Morgan Arcade
Tickets to register interest

Type hunt is a chance for people interested in typefaces or letterforms to explore and uncover Cardiff’s rich typographic heritage.

The aim of the project is to gather inspiration and find the best examples of letterforms in the City. Depending on what we find we aim to share the discoveries.

You can join in as an individual, as a pair or in a group, on foot, on your bike or any other mode of transport. It’s a half-day of exploration and detective work.

Each group or participant will take a different part of Cardiff to investigate. The task at hand will be to either find any examples of creative and interesting letterforms or to find certain examples of typeface families in use.

All you typophiles out there come and join us.
