19 designers were given an open brief to explore language's difficult, tongue-tripping, unpronounceable labyrinths typographically and in their own language. Drawing from Italian, Spanish, English, Russian and Chinese, these works take on a variety of forms: from letterpress and silkscreen prints, to light-based artworks and sculpture.

Our first exhibition took place in March at the German Gymnasium.
47 designers contributed work based on the dictionary's beautiful but forgotten words. See their work here.

The Art of Lost Words is currently available for touring - please get in touch if you're interested in bringing it to your venue. We can also help plan an educational or local design element to accompany the exhibition.
