I was recently invited by Maiike Van Neck to plot a typographic workshop for 50 Graphic Design Students at Ravensbourne College in London.

I asked the students to take advantage of their critical mass, and of the large open-space building of Ravensbourne, which offers a birds-eye view from 4 stories.

The students slipped into white overalls for uniformity and contrast on the dark floor, and worked in groups, each team art-directing the rest of the small crowd to perform their idea of human typography. Some used the individuals as pixels, others had a go exploring motion blur, while others organised a human chain that could be choreographed to elegantly (and efficiently!) merge from one letterform to the next.
