Posts Tagged ‘typeface designers’

A typeface designer doesn’t necessarily need to start out as one – to become one. A number of exceptional type designers had other plans before embarking on careers in the typographic arts. Communication Arts magazine just published an article I wrote about five young typeface designers who began their careers in other areas.

In addition to learning a little about how five designers began their careers, the article also shows some of their most recent typefaces. All are very cool designs.

If you do not have a subscription or want to purchase the issue (CA is a pretty pricey – but well worth it – magazine), you can read the article online at the following link.
