The Week in Type Hard to believe that 2011 is coming to a close. Autumn is showing its face, and before you know it, we’ll be Christmas shopping. Some inspiring stuff in this week’s The Week in Type. Sit back and enjoy.

TYPO-Berlin

by Dan Reynolds From May 19–21, FontShop hosted its 16th annual TYPO-Berlin conference. Over 1,600 guests were in attendance. This year’s conference theme was “Shift,” and the subtext of many of the presentations dealt with how to bring one’s design work to the next level, whether that is the next level of your own personal […]

New FontFont webfonts

Majoor Love I was thinking, if only Scala & Scala Sans were released as web fonts. Well, now they’re here, and accompanied by some 300 others from the FontFont library.

Twenty-ten type

The Week in Type Hoping that everyone is feeling refreshed, invigorated and inspired after Christmas and New Year. That we are now in 2010 is arbitrary, but it is at the same time a marker, the end of something, and the beginning of something else; a kind of armistice, an opportunity to dump all the […]

Sex, lies, & type

The second coming

By Nick Sherman If you’re a designer and haven’t already heard about Typographica‘s relaunched site and Favorite Typefaces of 2008 list, chances are you’ve been stranded on a desert island, far away from any relevant news sources. And even then, the list has received considerable attention beyond the usual design and typography blogs, getting mention […]

Yes, we kern

The Week in Type I had intended to publish my review of Theo‘s The Typographic Desk Reference today. I’ll publish that next week. And, I missed out on April Fool‘s. I had so many ideas, from the new and free Adobe fonts with embedded ad glyphs (the humour’s in the execution!) to the … well, […]

The Week in Type Later than usual, but it’s here. I’ve been devoting some considerable time to several ILT-related projects, so a little behind on posting here. I hope to tell you more about those projects in the near future; if I can get around the coding problems. OK, so let’s start with something fun:

Read between the leading

The Week in Type I always write this introductory paragraph last. As I’ve been working on this post all day, my eyes are now burning, and I’m flagging; so, let’s just get started. Loosen your belts — this is a big one.

Greener type

The Week in Type Notice anything different? ILT has gone green. In addition I have a new masthead. For more than a year, one of my all-time favourite typefaces has graced the head of these pages; but it’s time for a change. I had given some thought to a complete redesign, but then I asked […]

More from the mighty Seb Lester

Sexy Type Last week I featured Seb’s Mightier poster, one of which I purchased. The print quality really is quite exceptional. I don’t even have mine framed, yet I’m itching to buy another. Here are the latest from Seb Lester:

I Love Type Links 1

The Competition As a way of reducing the length of Sunday Type, I’ve decided to move the general links—bits and pieces—to a separate page. I don’t think I’ll show these posts on the home page, but by slicing Sunday Type in two (from time to time), I hope that it will be a little easier […]

Sunday Type: tsang type

Words as Pictures Thanks for your feedback to my questions about posting frequency and the length of these Sunday Type posts. I’ve decided to shorten Sunday Type just a little (though I will sometimes supersize it), and also post relevant newsworthy items throughout the week—if there are any, that is. I’m also considering ‘mashable’ posts […]

FF Meta Serif Microsite

Meta goes Micro I wouldn’t usually publish short items like this, but I like it, so here it is. FontShop has just launched a micro-site devoted to FF Meta Serif. Some interesting content, including this downloadable PDF poster:

Sunday Type: vintage type

Parachute Type Last week we led with a beautiful found type photo from David John Earls. This week we lead with another stunning photo from Adam Polselli. It just happens to be one of my favourite cars too. Anyone have a spare one languishing in their garage?

Sunday type: dotsquared type

Don’t forget your Underware First, a big thank you to all who read and commented on On Choosing Type. I’m in search of contributing authors who can write case studies on type choice for, say, a redesign. For example, Creative Review magazine recently redesigned and chose to use Farnham throughout; an article on why a […]

FontBook

RESENHA DO LIVRO Recentemente recebi através do correio algo grande, amarelo e pesando 3 kg. Não, não é uma banana geneticamente modificada, mas o FontBook do FontShop, a enciclopédia do tipo. Este livro realmente deveria vir com uma advertência de saúde: o meu carteiro quase teve uma hérnia entregando-o e muito perto de torcer seu […]

At last! FF Meta Serif

Wedding Bells I would usually never post two articles in a single day (I won’t be making a habit of it). However, the excitement was just too much, and the news too hot. Many of you will be familiar with Spiekermann’s wonderful FF Meta. But for years FF Meta lived a lonely existence with no […]

Identify That Font

What font is that? Ever seen a typeface (font) you like but couldn’t identify it? I once knew an Art Director who was able to identify just about any typeface I showed him. However, in recent years, even he responds with, I don’t have a clue.
