Cast Iron Typography

We created a series of cast iron guidance tactiles for the Middlehaven development as a way of preserving local language and historic words within the public realm.

We researched the history of the local docks and built in a series of 'rare words' synonymous with the areas past whilst being playful in their delivery. The tactiles were cast in a local foundry and are an example of relevant and integrated art along with the joy of not being sold anything.
