FontCasts #13, 14, 15 — FontFont Designers

logo_twentyFontFont represents some of the most talented and interesting type designers in the world. And for most of the year, that’s where they are: scattered all over the globe. In celebration of FontShop’s 20th Anniversary, FSI’s Ivo Gabrowitsch took the opportunity of a rare gathering this spring to talk with seven FontFont designers and get their take on their personal history in type design and what’s coming next. These conversations, peppered with insight about the creative process, are a rare look at the faces behind the typefaces.

FontCast #13Michael Abbink from New York City (FF Kievit, FF Milo) and Erik van Blokland from The Hague (FF Trixie, FF Erikrighthand, FF Beowolf).

FontCast #14 — Martin Wenzel from Berlin (FF Profile, FF Duper), Łukasz Dziedzic from Warsaw (FF Clan, FF Good, FF Pitu), and Siegfried Rückel from Berlin (FF Alega, FF Nuvo).

FontCast #15 — Donald Beekman from Amsterdam (FF Imperial, FF Flava, FF Soul) and Albert-Jan Pool from Hamburg (FF DIN, FF OCR F).
