Pimp My Type!

Here at ILT, we’re huge fans of the perennially blue-shirted Oliver Schöndorfer, better known as the Pimp My Type guy. On Oliver’s Pimp My Type website and burgeoning YouTube channel, he eloquently and effortlessly explains many of the finer points of type choice and typography.

We were thrilled when he sat down with our CEO, Nadine Chanine, to talk about Arabic type design, typography, type design in general, and also the current state of font distribution:

Part Two
