44 - Leaves TPYF

leaves number 44

TPYF (Their Past, Your Future)is a project for schools to explore the history of the armed forces.

Gabi and I were luck enough to be asked by the Gordon Highlanders to help them create workshops and activities to look at the GH history with artistic eyes.

We Tied in the Typeface A Week project and worked with various schools and children to create new typefaces based on aspects of the histories they found most interesting.

The children were interested in many aspects - from chocolate rations to poppies for rememberance... It was a fantastic experience for us and the pupils, and we think we got some very interesting and exciting work from the project.

Gabi and Phil would like to thank all the schools & pupils involved in the project, and a special thanks to Aurelie Bureau for asking us to participate and plan projects with her at the Gordon Highlanders.

This typeface is now unavailable for download - but will be included in the limited edition CD Rom of all 52 Typefaces at the beginning of 2010. To secure a CD Rom, please email us (Phil & Gabi) at If you would like to get involved in making a typeface for the project, please email us at : or leave a comment below!
