Typographer Seb Lester -- who has created faces including Neo Sans and Soho -- shows type-based artworks from today in his first solo exhibition, at the Electrik Sheep gallery in Newcastle.


Seb Lester shows original artworks; limited-edition prints will be available to buy during the exhibition.

Seb Lester is a rising star on the type-design scene. He says on his website: "I really wanted to call my first show 'Tits, Arse & Hellfire', but almost everyone talked me out of it."

His works often combine highly traditional styles and letterforms with racy subjects for a tongue-in-cheek effect. The pieces feature an almost obsessive attention to detail, and all the sense of proportion and form you'd expect from a typographer.

The exhibition runs from August 6. See the Electrik Sheep website for more information.
