  6. Weekly Typographic: Chris Skillern, from Tulsey Type

    One of the things we really love about doing this podcast is the opportunity to chat to type designers, and especially newer designers who are doing their own thing with type design. This week we’re delighted to chat with Chris Skillern, from Tulsey Type.

    You might recognise Chris’ name from the TypeWknd21 round up episodes last year, as we really enjoyed his talk about the Cherokee syllabary. We catch up with Chris to find out about his experience completing the online Type West course, his tips for creativity and type design, and what he’s working on now. https://www.theleagueofmoveabletype.com/podcast/an-interview-with-chris-skillern-of-tulsey-type
