Do what you believe in.

Established in April 2019, Outdoors Type is a project formed to engage and collaborate with communities, organisations, schools and businesses.

The mission is to create meaningful and inventive typographic design for public art.

Displaying words, stories and visual metaphors focusing on:

A positive mindset
Painting and lettering life enhancing messages which can positively alter thoughts and actions. Morale boosting notices promoting hope, purpose and self esteem.

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.

Strong community values
Exhibiting messages which will influence individuals of all ages and from all backgrounds. Helping to build an inclusive and considerate community.

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 and learning.

Guiding and networking individuals of all ages and abilities. Sharing ideas, building friendships and providing a sense of achievement by means 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; having fun developing concepts and improving practical skills.

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

Get Involved!
