Year 2 BA (Hons) Graphic Design – Typography 2: Theory & Practical Applications

Interview with one of my favourite type designers, Erik Spiekermann. He founded the type reseller FontShop and foundry FontFont. Those are the same companies we were watching a video about at college. There is some great stuff in there, like his prediction that print and web design are going to become the same — that sounds like great material for discussion!
There is a new article on ilovetypography.com talking about Ludwig Übele’s FF Tundra. Well worth the read just to get a designer’s interpretation of what makes a good text face. Extremely handsome typeface in my opinion, and I love the name too – tundra is a beautiful word (don’t ask me why though, I’ve always liked it)
