I had grand plans to put out another jam-packed newsletter this side of the Christmas holidays, but a whole load of end-of-year deadlines got in the way. But maybe that’s not a bad thing..? I mean, perhaps all those lovely links would’ve just got lost in the festive chaos anyway.
So today I’m keeping it simple: I have some news and that news is that the third episode of my podcast Hello, type friends! is live — and my guest for this episode is Erik Spiekermann!
I recorded our chat back in the summer, when I sat down for a cup of tea with Erik at this house in London. We discussed his successes and failures, his latest typeface neue Serie57®, the relationship between paper and screen, and why Frutiger could very well be the typeface he takes to a desert island.
You can listen to the episode right now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and hellotypefriends.com. 🎉 Oh, and, if you know Erik, you won’t be surprised to hear that there’s plenty of swearing in this episode, so, um, cover the kids’ ears!
