The Northern Block — Newcastle-upon-tyne, UK

What is the most memorable piece of typography you have come across? “There is one object that comes to my mind almost instantly. It is a product of the 20th-century’s greatest revolutionary artists, Vladimir Mayakovsky and El Lissitzky: an iconic and breathtaking book, For The Voice. For the first time, it made me question the relationship between convention and experimentation in type design. It remains a topic of great interest to the present day.”

The Northern Block is a collaborative type foundry, award-winning and internationally recognised for producing new typefaces that are fit for a modern purpose.
