After representatives from all these perspectives gave formal presentations, there was plenty of free-form discussion that engaged panelists and outspoken members of the audience. The loudest — and often the most interesting — of these voices was unarguably David Berlow's.

David Berlow designed typefaces for Mergenthaler, Linotype, Stempel, and Haas typefoundries in the '70s, pioneered digital type at Bitstream in the '80s, and founded The Font Bureau with legendary art director Roger Black in 1989. The Font Bureau library is often the first place magazine and newspaper designers look for new typefaces.

Berlow's diverse perspective, experience, and strong opinions give him an insightful, provocative view of Web typography and I think that shows during our discussion in Mexico City. Enjoy, and please comment with your thoughts.
