‘A Type Thing’ is a new quarterly lettering meet-up presented by Melbourne based lettering collective, General Type Co, in collaboration with Work-Shop. The aim of these meet-ups is to bring type enthusiasts from all backgrounds together to exchange ideas, knowledge and share their love of letters. Each themed session will be hosted by a guest artist, who will give a short presentation on their progression as a lettering artist, sharing tips, tricks, and tools of the trade, and presenting an activity/ challenge for guests to participate in.

With an emphasis on ‘learning by doing’ and hands-on experimentation, a range of art materials will be provided for each session. If you have any favourite materials that you’re working with, we encourage you to bring those along to experiment with and share with others. 

Whether you’re a practising lettering artist, graphic designer, or simply have a ‘thing’ for letters, we encourage you to come along for a fun night of lettering and learning with like-minded people. 


We are excited to bring another instalment of A Type Thing, our 6th event, with our host Marcos Diaz (aka Digable Goods). A west Melbourne based designer/illustrator with an eye for type and a background in graffiti, Marcos has worked with well-known brands like Budweiser, Jansport and Puma, just to name a few. He is going to take us through his work and process for creating illustrative type, if you are ready to add an extra element to your type this is going to be for you. We are stoked to have him and if you haven’t already, go over to his Instagram @digablegoods to check out his work.
