Alan Kitching and Monotype

Celebrating five pioneers of the poster

This exhibition celebrated the collaboration between two typographic forces: Alan Kitching, a leading practitioner in letterpress, typography and design; and Monotype, global trailblazers in type and home to some of the world’s most popular typefaces.

The exhibition featured the Alan Kitching Collection which celebrated the lives of five very influential graphic designers: » Tom Eckersley » Abram Games » FHK Henrion » Josef Müller-Brockmann and Paul Rand.

The show revealed the process behind the making of the Collection; following Alan’s journey from research and sketches, through the Monotype archive, to Alan’s workshop and the finished printed pieces.

Design your own #NTUmonogram

During the exhibition, students at Nottingham Trent University and visitors of the exhibition were invited to design their very own personalised monogram to be in with a chance of winning a limited edition print from the Alan Kitching Collection. The rules were simple; the monogram had to:

1) include your own initials
2) use one letter from the typefaces used in the Alan Kitching Collection. The subsequent letters could come from anywhere: another typeface, hand-drawn, a found letter…
3) be rendered in a way that it tells us something about the designer.

Entries were then uploaded with the hashtag #NTUmonogram to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

The competition ended on Sunday 18 October 2015, and the winner (selected by Alan Kitching himself) was announced on Thursday 22 October.

Read all about the winning entry and the runners-up in this story on our blog.
