Tits, Arse and Hellfire

Type designer Seb Lester’s first solo exhibition opens at Newcastle’s Electrik Sheep Gallery this week…

Type designer Seb Lester has been taking a break, of late, from producing typefaces to work on a series of playful posters and prints – all of which showcase his interest in typographic illustration. A show of these prints (Lester’s first solo exhibition) opens at Newcastle’s Electrik Sheep Gallery this week…

“Someone who loves cooking doesn’t just want to make fish and chips I guess,” says Lester of his break from creating whole typefaces. “I have extremely broad taste in letterforms,” he continues. “In some respects this show is my reaction to having designed corporate typefaces so much for so long, which are inherently conservative in nature. I love designing robustly modern industrial type, but I also want to indulge my passion for other more expressive and sensual lettering styles. That’s really what this show is all about.”

Here are a few prints that will feature in the show:

The exhibition runs until August 29 at Electrik Sheep Gallery, 22 Pink Lane, Newcastle NE1 5DW
