Do what you believe in.

Outdoors Type was established in April 2019 as a creative outlet; formed to engage and collaborate with communities, organisations, schools and businesses.

The mission is to rejuvenate shared and public areas in and around Dundee, by means of lettering art.

Creating words, stories and visual metaphors focusing on:

A positive mindset
Painting and lettering life enhancing messages which can positively alter thoughts and actions. Providing purpose and boosting self esteem for viewers and everyone who wants to participate.

The care for our environment
Highlighting the responsibility of each of us, as stewards of our planet. Reminding us to consider choices made every day, which will affect the areas in which we all share.

Community values
Responsibly collaborating with groups and individuals, of all ages and from all backgrounds. Helping to build pride for communities and enable a sense of ownership.

Regenerating shared and public spaces
Enhancing walls, fences, windows, pavements. On and around community buildings and open spaces, industrial property, unoccupied shops, units and warehouses.

Looking forward

The unfolding vision for Outdoors Type is a project of participation, fun and learning.

Guiding individuals of all ages and abilities to share ideas, build friendships and provide a sense of achievement. Promoting and practising aspects of graphic design, painting and hand lettering.

Involving local authorities and organisations to contribute spaces and canvasses. Encouraging schools, youth groups and creatives to get involved. Improving social and practical skills, as well as having fun in the process

Empowering all contributors to share their thoughts and use their voice.
