It’s Typographic Wednesday again, time for some nice insider news from the typography scene.
Helvetica; the movie has started showing! I am very excited and I will be sure to buy the movie as soon as it comes out. It’s already been dubbed ‘the most interesting movie on Graphic Design’, and has received general praise. Keep an eye on this movie, featuring the biggest star in typography to date.
The typographic blog Type for You has a nice interview with Wim Crouwel, a Dutch type designer who did works like the New Alphabet and Gridnik (both now for sale at the Foundry). He’s also, incidentally, from the same city – while I study in Groningen, he spent most of his life there.
Fabrizio Schiavi is a great type designer. He’s just released a new, beautiful stencil font that redefines the look of stencil. Meet Siruca;
Fabrizio Schiavi’s font portfolio includes the beautiful Sys, and CP Company.
That’s it, for now, some smoky words,
