This is Hardcore (Typography)

It's that time of year again when Rhiannon Robinson (33), our in-house typography expert and current reining Typographer Royal spends some 'quality time' with the first year students.

Rhiannon's passion for the subject is infectious and soon, with her expert guidance, the students are making rapid progress in this highly technical and incredibly important discipline.

We'll show you the finished results later (the deadline is Friday) but, in the meantime, here are a few 'action' shots of Year 1...

Sophie and Natalie getting everything sorted on paper before they visit Mr Mac (the sausage butty is optional)

H.R.H. The Typographer Royal in action...

Sam going for the Highest Hair in the Studio Award (another 80mm an it's his!)

Ben scrutinizes the pretty colours

Alex (right) wearing his favourite sweatshirt. He's had it since his very first day in reception class (September 4 1977)

Calum, being an Illustrator is really, really good at colouring in without crossing the lines

If Cameron continues to slouch like this, a long relationship with a chiropractor in later life would seem highly likely. Straighten up, lazy boy!

Adam and Rhiannon share a typographic joke, however...

... moments later Rhiannon spots that Adam has left his leading on default and his tracking is just a little too loose.

Punishment for any type crime is swift and final!

Please be assured, he won't be making that mistake again...
