Font Sunday

Held every Sunday by the Design Museum on Twitter, Font Sunday is becoming more and more of a tradition for type enthusiasts. From noon and for 4 hours, passionate typographers, designers and non from all around the world tweets their favourite letterforms, images and typefaces. The theme changes every Sunday, and so does the guest host who choose and propose it to the Design Museum.

Last November 2015, on Sunday the 8th, Font Sunday was held by Studio Sparrowhill, an independent graphic design studio based in Loughborough, UK. Studio Sparrowhill chose stencils as the theme, and to make their Font Sunday even more exciting, they decided to design a stencil themed poster, based on Milton Glaser’s ‘Glaser Stencil’ typeface, to award to the best contributors.

They partnered with London based screenprinter Dan Mather, who we already had the pleasure to meet, who printed it with his expertise in red fluorescent ink on Mohawk Superfine paper by GF Smith.

The result was a Font Sunday which saw one of the highest number of tweets with the hashtag #FontSunday, and this nice limited edition poster which was then sent out to fond supporters from the UK to overseas, from America to Australia. Even his majesty Milton Glaser received one.
