How I became a type designer.
posted:
Decades ago, I sat in the chilly offices of International Typeface Corporation and, in the glow of a space heater, listened to Director of Typeface Development, Ilene Strizver suggest that I could make fonts.
Today, more than a score of years and fonts later, Ilene has honored me with a lovely article about my work and process. Not too shabby from the premiere maven of typography for designers. Learn more about Ilene at The Type Studio.
Also, check out the 4th edition of her incredible book Type Rules! The Designer's Guide to Professional Typography.
