‘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 practicing 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’re excited to have one of Melbourne’s most proficient lettering artists, Lachlan Philp, hosting the fourth installment of A Type Thing, presenting the theme ‘Script’.

Lachlan is a multi-disciplinary designer who has been working with script and lettering for several years. He has created custom type and lettering for the likes of Bonds Australia and Carlton United Breweries, as well as a range of creative agencies and businesses, locally and internationally. He currently works in Melbourne out of Gods Guest House studio.

In this session, Lachlan will show his body of work, answer questions on lettering, and explore materials and techniques involved before launching into exercises for everybody to create script lettering.
