In recent years I’ve had the opportunity to do many things I hadn’t considered before. Experience lettercutting and letterpress printing taught by the finest exponents of those arts, participate in talks and exhibitions as well as curate ones of my own, build a mad musical sculpture and direct a short film (which you can see here). Not least I’ve had the privilege to be chairman of this wonderful organisation – a role I never imagined myself doing – and cap that off by organising our thirtieth anniversary conference.
This shift in perspective from producing work for clients to producing things for a wider audience has been liberating. The people I’ve collaborated with within Letter Exchange and beyond have been inspirational and I look forward to future projects whatever they might bring.
