Sean Kerr’s reworking of The World of Interiors magazine: “I especially enjoyed the focus around punctuation and having to think hard about what is a ‘typographic gesture’. I also enjoyed the conversation around ‘the jester’ and seeing what everyone made.”

Studio Catherine
Griffiths and
typ gr ph c
acknowledge the
encouragement of
Shabnam Shiwan to
begin the series,
five years on
from TypeSHED11.

A note on the
visual language
of typ gr ph c:
The right-angled
trapezoid and
two circles are
informed by the
floor plan of the
two studios, and
the plywood
remnants from
building. The
circles together
form the figure
8; the holes
match the number
of consonsants;
which in turn,
sets the number
of participants,
four in each
studio space.
