Our latest Please Explain is all about typefaces and typography. Typeface designer Jonathan Hoefler, type designer and president of Hoefler & Frere-Jones and Steven Heller, co-chair of the MFA Designer as Author program at the School of Visual Arts and author of the VISUALS column for the New York Times Book Review, will explain how typefaces are created and why typography is important to communication and design.
This week on the show we talk all about type on the web. We discuss recent developments like Typekit, Font Bureau’s Permission table, and Spiekermann’s new typeface Axel. We also talk a bit about our own idea for a non-profit type foundry, a foundry based on donations that commissions type designers to design web fonts we can release for free on the web.
We’d love to hear your feedback about our non-profit type foundry idea. We’d also love to hear any news (or any corrections) about some of this new technology we’re talking about. Feel free to leave us a comment here, email us at email@example.com, or find us on twitter @rbtlshow.
