46 - webbing (TPYF)

webbing number 46

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 particularly liked the webbing / uniform typeface the class of Riverbank Primary School came up with... it was fantastic to see how they pupils looked for shapes and form within overyday objects to create letterforms. They'd really got the idea of using everyday objects to create new forms.

webbing for the TPYF 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!
