Alan Kitching RDI AGI HonFRCA is one of the world’s foremost practitioners of letterpress typographic design and printmaking. At age 15, Alan became an apprentice compositor with a letterpress printer in his native Darlington in the north of England. After a subsequent successful career in conventional and corporate graphic design, he decided to return to his letterpress roots and in 1989 he established The Typography Workshop in London. He is renowned for his expressive use of wood and metal letterforms in creating visuals for commissions and limited edition prints. He lives and works with designer, writer and partner Celia Stothard at The Typography Workshop in Kennington, south London.
This is a rare opportunity to hear Alan discuss his work, coinciding with the the last day of the large Font Shop International FiFFteen exhibition at the University's Belfast Campus.
Places are limited so reservation is recommended.
