Designers And Their Former Careers
A typeface designer doesn't necessarily need to start out as one – to become one. A number of exceptional type designers had other plans before embarking on careers in the typographic arts. Communication Arts magazine just published an article I wrote about five young typeface designers who began their careers in other areas.
In addition to learning a little about how five designers began their careers, the article also shows some of their most recent typefaces. All are very cool designs.
If you do not have a subscription or want to purchase the issue (CA is a pretty pricey – but well worth it – magazine), you can read the article online at the following link.
Allan Haley is Director of Words & Letters at Monotype Imaging. Here he is responsible for strategic planning and creative implementation of just about everything related to typeface designs.
