For many visitors to Urbis Designday, the Geyser building was the first stop. It was home to the Urbis HQ and a collaborative installation by Simon Devitt and Youmans, and host to Design Assembly.

The group of 11 graphic designers revealed punters’ personality types by taking them on a typographical journey through one of the ground floor, street-front spaces of the building. Stands decorated with questions (such as ‘Are you a morning person?’) directed people around the room until their type – a personality type and an actual font type – were revealed. If you were diagnosed to be a Slab Serif for example, the card you received enlightened you on your favourite music (80’s power ballads), food (sausages) and hidden talent (male cheerleading!).

The installation was humourous, clever, pleasing on the eye, and a great way to kick off the day.
