Not my type

Next Thursday, whilst people all over the country are going out of their way to put an X on a ballot paper, in Birmingham, 35 talented designers and illustrators will be showing their take on all 26 letters of the alphabet (and a few additional symbols!).

Organised by Jonny Costello and Charlotte Audrey Owen-Meehan and hosted by the wonderful (temporary?) Created in Birmingham shop in the Bullring, Not my type opens on May 6th. All prints will be available to buy from both the store and through the Facebook group here, although the designs are going to be kept secret until the day of the opening.

The roster of people involved is looking great. I’m doing the letter B and am really excited about seeing the finished alphabet.

Plenty of my talented friends in the line up:

John Bennett

Ben Javens

Lee Basford

Stef Grindley

Log Roper

Jonny Costello

There will also be letters from Family, Jon Burgerman and Supercool to name but a few.

Should be awesome. I’ll post pics after the show launches.

If you’re around and want to come to the opening its May 6th at the Created in Birmingham shop, Bullring, Birmingham. 6pm -8pm.
