• Typography collaboration with Dust

Posted by brian on Wednesday, March 12, 2014

What Sheffield Cycling fans print on the Pedal Powered Printing Press has always been equally as important as building it. From the start I wanted to use type from Sheffield's Stephenson Blake foundry - it seems only right.

Looking into this with friends very quickly led me to letterpress enthusiast Ashleigh Armitage and Sheffield based typography experts Dust. After a few tweets and a visit to their studio today, I'm pleased to say we'll be working on the design together.

I enjoyed rummaging through Dust's collection of Stephenson Blake type and their strong ties with Sheffield Hallam University should mean we can raid their collection if needed. I can't think of a better group of people to be working with - really looking forward to setting the type.
