Where am I? A visual history of London’s street nameplates

31 May 2018

St Bride Foundation, London

All across London you can find a remarkable public archive of lettering – London’s street nameplates. A unique collection of styles and forms that stretches back to the 18th century. They work both as visual anchors, telling us where we are, and as temporal anchors, telling us where we’ve come from.

Alistair Hall, of design studio We Made This, will present his ongoing research into this fantastic public gallery of lettering, revealing what he’s discovered so far, and showcasing work by Berthold Wolpe, Design Research Unit, Atelier Works, David Kindersley, Kinneir & Calvert, and more.
