Chitterlings supper at The Vaults

Author: Andy Hartwell

Last Thursday I was privileged enough to attend the Chitterlings dinner at The Vaults in Birmingham organised by Type. With a small number of just 16 of us it was a great opportunity to meet with like minded individuals who share my passion for design.

The venue was great, we met in the bar where I discussed Typographic Horizons with Nathan from Smile and then we continued through to the Soprano room. Our place names were beautifully made by calligrapher Paul Antonio and the menus typographically designed by Katie and James from Supercool. It was all rather impressive!

Our guest speaker was typographer, designer and author John D Berry, President of ATypl (Association Typographique Internationale) who has won numerous awards for his book designs. He spoke about his experience over the years, his love and understanding of the past and future of typography, as well as the pathways throughout his career.

It was a lovely evening fuelled by fine wine, fabulous food and most importantly the opportunity to meet really interesting people! I will look forward to the next event…
