ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The aim of this project is the creation of an archive of publicly sourced images of found typography in the Leeds area.

Images will be selected based on the criteria set out in the FAQS and as well as forming an archive they will be used as research material to aid the development of an open source typeface.

Is it possible to extract an essence or vernacular from such images?

Read our FAQs

 

The resulting typeface will be used to create the identity of ongoing type-based projects.

If you are interested in collaborating on this element of the project please get in touch.

A Colours May Vary project, Brand Direction by Josiah Craven, designed and built by Hungry Sandwich Club.
Supported by Leeds Inspired.

 

If you’ve got any questions or just want to say hi, shoot us an email hello@typesetting.co.

What is meant by 'found type'?
In essence we want you to find examples of the use of letters and numbers in the public domain. We want you to look up and down for examples of typography. Building signs, posters etc.

The type should be specific to your location and perhaps something you might not find elsewhere. Eg: Leeds Market trader handwritten signage Ok, Greggs the baker signage not ok! We want to see personality, originality, heritage. An essence of Leeds. It doesn't have to be beautiful or professional. Keep your eyes open.

Images are not automatically uploaded to the site. Each image will undergo a selection process based on the criteria listed by a group of humans.

My picture isn't on the site? Why not?
The site is curated according to criteria such as high quality image, original content, appropriate content..

Where will my image be used?
We will not use the image without your permission for any other purpose than outlined here.
