Welcome to this short, sweet, and special edition of the newsletter, which is here to do one thing and one thing only: to let you know (and I’m announcing it here before I post it on social media) that my Other Big Secret Typography Project is... 🥁
... a brand new podcast called Hello, type friends!
The idea is that I sit down with a friend to discuss life, work, and, well, whatever comes up. Rather than discuss the details of type (who wants to listen to people talk about Bézier curves on a podcast?), type is instead the thread that binds these friends together, be they lettering artists, graphic designers, illustrators, or type designers. Listening to Hello, type friends! will hopefully feel a bit like overhearing a couple of mates chatting in the pub. In other words: this is a podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Some episodes even involve actual beer.
My guest for the very first episode in the eight (if you know, you know) episode season is none other than Jessica Hische. To you folks, of course, I doubt she needs any introduction.
So watch this space. And, hey, maybe keep your eyes on your podcast app of choice, too. Full details coming very soon.
