Let’s talk type. Herb Lubalin. This is typical of Lubalin’s work: a stark, bold layout—with bespoke lettering, combined to create a stunning composition. It’s A 1959 trade-journal ad, promoting the work of the advertising firm Sudley & Hennessey, where Lubalin worked from 1945 to 1964. This week I spent an evening at St. Brides typographic library for a celebration of the life and work of the American Graphic Designer and for the launch of the first comprehensive monograph...

Book Review: The Geometry of Type There are many things I like about Stephen Coles’ recent book; the bright, clean design and the accessible structure allowing you to dip in and out; but most of all, it’s the lack of fluff or filler. The content has been carefully honed to focus on the important details, which is in fact what the book is all about: the details of each typeface. In highlighting and comparing the features that give each typeface its character, anyone exploring this subject can beg...

Desk Letters A world of options in this alphabet inspired desk design by French, CGI Designer, Benoit Challand. Each offers a space with its own character. “You can sit in an A-shaped desk, feeling like you’re at the prow of a ship, or in the smooth curve of a D, far more comfortable than being boxed into a traditional cubicle.”

Summer Reading & Type Design at Reading Today, another book arrived from the reading list that I’ve been provided, ahead of studying Type Design at Reading University in the UK. In addition to its world-renowned MA programme the University has created a short course for those, like myself, who can’t commit to a year of full-time study.
