It may not even be December yet but we are all getting into the festive spirit here at Silver!

Christmas is a great opportunity to get creative, from making gifts, designing cards and gift tags to decorating festive treats. And it is a brilliant time to get out there to get inspiration. One particular event has caught our eye and the Silver team are keen to check it out…

The Pop-up Typography Emporium is taking place this weekend, between the 1st and 2nd of December at the Chocolate Factory N16. The project is made up of typographical pieces by Sarah Hyndman of With Relish to see and to buy. A good find for designer friends, from screen-printed Dalston posters to glow-in-the-dark greeting cards.

The pieces are imaginative and festively fun, beautifully executed. The glow-in-the-dark Christmas cards have been used to reveal secret messages which add more intrigue to the cards.

We also like how Hyndman has used type to create images as shown in The Twelve Days of Christmas. This consists of clever use of symbols and letters with intelligent creativity.

Will we see you guys down there? Maybe we’ll drop by the Winter Wonderland whilst we’re there…!
