EUnity typeface

Europe is in a crisis! Countries are in doubt. How much power do we lend to the European Union? What is the value of the Euro? Do we have to suffer for other countries problems? What if we step out of the EU, and just fend for ourselfs?!

It's a crisis indeed, in which there are alot of short term visions and 'solutions'. Surely you can just drop out, but what about the future? Europe must remember that we are not the only economy around. You can fend for yourself for a while but in the end you must compete with future big economic powers like China, India and South America.

What Europe needs to survive on a long term is a solid platform. A strong network with clear guidelines that stimulates trading, but with the countries remaining their own seperate identity.

Working Ludlow


Although looked down upon as not being for book work there are several faces designed for the Ludlow that are quite usable for books.
Until I can make a scan of them I'll name them: Eusebius, Goudy, Garamond, and Stellar. There may be a few others but these are ones that I chose based on their typographic merits. Stellar is a sans serif type that is quite nice for its weight and balance.

“The Complete Engraver” is now up on Mohawk Fine Paper's Felt & Wire:

Love the Typeface on 'The We and I'

Anyone have any clue what the as to what the display font is?

Smashing Magazine tells the story of a bitter rivalry between two foundries, and goes on to ask the question, "What is plagiarism?"

Note the cameo quote pulled from Typophile from our own Nick Shinn. Nice job, Nick!

In conjunction with the exhibition Graphic Design: Now in Production at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City, Ellen Lupton of the National Design Museum and Cara DiEdwardo of the Cooper Union will moderate a panel of type designers discussing the problems they have tackled.

I am pleased that my font Williams Caslon Text is one of those in the exhibition, and I will be one of the panel discussing Wicked Problems in Type Design on June 18 at the the Rose Auditorium of Cooper Union. The others speaking will be: Philippe Apeloig, Hubert Jocham, Henrik Kubel, Jeremy Mickel, and Jesse Ragan.

120 kg of letters

Had a fantastic weekend in a course organised by Grafia, the Finnish Graphic Designer's organisation. It was a letterpress course, where the teacher Mikko Keski-Vähälä had brought a selection of his woodblock and lead fonts for us to use as we pleased. There was one graphic press, and we also used spoon or bone to rub the text in (good method for thinner paper). It was my first time to actually use those letters, and a fantastic experience.
