Signage, wayfinding and printed matter for Tate Britain


We designed a display alphabet inspired by the set of roman and italic print alphabets printed by Carington Bowles in London in 1775, originally published for the use of signwriters and letter cutters. It is a sympathetic ‘British vernacular’ letterform for a British building displaying British Art. Variants of this letterform are cast in brass for external signs and silkscreened directly onto the interior gallery walls.

See the Tate Britain project page for applications of the letterform.
