Designer Oli Bentley introduces These Northern Types, a thought-provoking and ambitious collection of works that simultaneously celebrate northern identity whilst asking searching questions about our relationship to place.

Find out how the project accidentally created the world record-holding People Powered Press, and why it printed on life jackets used by migrants making the journey to Europe, made inks from chip shop gravy powder and curry sauce and submitted an audacious application to trademark ‘The North’, subsequently launched on Twitter from our ‘London Office’.

“Ambitious, expansive, and inventive… These Northern Types feels like an important sociological project… No one project can ever adequately summarise the state of a nation, but These Northern Types is as good an attempt as you’ll see all year.”
