AIGA Type Forecast

Last Friday, AIGA/NY held a lecture featuring three type designers that if you don’t already know, than you should definitely get to know.

Probably the most visible of the three, Brooklyn’s own, Jessica Hische graciously talked about her process for developing her impeccable lettering skills and how she fell into to her Daily Drop Cap project. German-based type designer Georg Seifert told us about how he got tired working with FontLab, so he decided to just go and develop his own font application which he called Glyphs; which is just crazy! I just downloaded it now and can’t wait to play around with it! Finally, Joshua Darden of Brooklyn-based Darden Studio schooled us all in type history and what it takes to actually sit down and design a typeface. I feel dumb totally dumb for not knowing much about about this guy until now. He’s definitely the Neil deGrasse Tyson of the type design world, the guy is just too smart for his own good!

All in all, it was a great lecture which included the ever hilarious and equally awesome designer Matteo Bologna of Mucca Design as guest moderator. Totally worth the $30 bucks.
