Default Type designer interviews — nice reads

I had somehow missed knowing about the type design articles on the MyFonts web site — until now. The Bitstream-owned company has three series: interviews with type designers (“Creative Characters”); survey of new fonts and their designers (“Rising Stars”); and introductions to new fonts in the MyFonts catalog (“In Your Face”).

All are worth reading, but I especially like the type designer interviews. The other articles are more directly (or less subtly, maybe) meant to urge us to lust for new fonts (display type, mainly). But the illustrations are good, among other things, and there are special offers that type-buyers will appreciate.

This month’s “character” is Nick Shinn. Earlier interviews included Jim Parkinson, P22, Underware, David Berlow (Font Bureau), and more.

It is an e-mail subscription (though I would never want to read it in my e-mail — click the link and see the web page). You can subscribe at the link above, and browse through the interviews and articles.
