Particitype is the creation of letterforms through means of participation and collaboration.


Originally visitors to were invited to send instructions on how they desired certain letters to be drawn, this was achieved using a predetermined set of tools. This experiment went beyond the process of designing a typeface, and explored themes of participation and the way in which instructions can be interpreted. This was enabled through giving up the control we have as designers and handing it over to an audience. Ultimately Particitype is open-ended and welcomes creativity.

This year at 'Into The Fold' Particitype will continue to explore these themes in a similar format, whilst also considering how such work and its decisive nature can exist within a constantly developing gallery space.

This event is part of the Camberwell Space Projects exhibition Into The Fold which runs from 1 March - 15 April 2015.

This event is free and open to all.
