66: Freda Sack

Print, Promotion & Event

As well as having served LongLunch as a volunteer, studio director Ryan Thompson is also a long-term member of the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD), having passed the Student Assessment Scheme with Merit in his final year at college.

It was this connection which brought renowned typeface designer Freda Sack to Scotland in early 2017 to speak at the Glasgow School of Art. Working with Freda, Rydo developed a design concept which made prominent use of the event number — 66 — and one of Freda’s well known typefaces, Foundry Wilson. The A2 poster was screen printed with white and a metallic purple ink on a luscious deep charcoal coloured paper stock to make for an event poster worth holding on to.
