I'm very excited to be taking part in this year’s Pick Me Up, a brilliant annual graphic arts festival based at Somerset House in London.
Running for its fifth year, Pick Me Up is a vibrant contemporary festival showcasing everything graphic art-related, from both new and established illustrators and designers showcasing their work, to events, talks and interactive workshops to get involved in.
On Monday 5 May, Purpose have been invited to organise a day of typographic loves, hates and guilty pleasures entitled ‘Sins Serif: Confessions of a Typographer’. We’ve got a range of sinful activities lined up, including a series of sermons and creative workshops, where you’ll have the chance to create your very own typographic masterpieces. In need of some soul cleansing? Why not enter our very own confession booth and share all your typographic guilty pleasures.
Moving away from the traditional art fair, the festival looks set to be a fun, eclectic mix of events, and you can find out more about the programme here. You can also follow Sins Serif through their Twitter account here - make sure you tweet your confessions to @SinsSerif if you’d like to see them projected around the event space.
Join us on 5 May and seek typographic redemption at Somerset House.
