The cityscape is packed with lettering. From beautiful building names, constantly changing shop fronts to old ‘ghost-signs’, we see writing around us every day, but may not stop to appreciate it. Phil Baines and Catherine Dixon of Central Saint Martins lead a series of four different walks uncovering some of the fascinating visual landscapes of London. 

Further details, including meeting point, to be announced. 

In association with Graphic Communication Design, Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London
