Typographic Design in the Digital Domain:
A Conversation With Erik Spiekermann
This is a perfect complement to the conference for any new readers coming here after seeing me talk at Beyond Tellerrand. Metro, the design paradigm behind Windows Phone is in part a celebration of typography. In this short film, godfather of modern type Erik Spiekermann talks with Elliot Jay Stocks about how typography is used in the digital domain and what digital designers can learn from traditional print techniques. Highly recommended viewing.
