Event Details

Much of my work has been concerned with utilitarian typefaces, self-effacing designs for setting text in newspapers or magazines on paper or online. These have often had to deal with issues of legibility in difficult production situations. On the other hand, from time to time I have had a chance to design types that are less run-of-the-mill, in the sense that they were not primarily meant for text setting or solving technical problems. I describe four of these "untypical" designs in detail, explain the backstory behind the unusual manner in which they came about, and show examples of them in use.
