Summer Reading & Type Design at Reading

Today, another book arrived from the reading list that I’ve been provided, ahead of studying Type Design at Reading University in the UK. In addition to its world-renowned MA programme the University has created a short course for those, like myself, who can’t commit to a year of full-time study. The TDi takes the key elements from the year-long course and condenses them down into one or two weeks of very intensive study.<p>The emphasis is on research and rigorous discussion to inform design …

Learn to make 3D Type

Today, Jeff Rogers launched a new course over on Skillshare: <b>Digital Lettering: Designing 3D Type and Texture.</b><p>It’s a subject close to my heart and I’m always interested in the techniques that other letterers use in creating their work. The class was just over an hour, so I pulled up chair and watched Jeff work his magic.<p>The course takes you through selecting appropriate fonts for the job, and then building the text up with colour, dimension and texture. Even though I’ve created several 3D …

Radio Graphics

I spotted this eye-catching collection of American Radio displays from the 1930s – 1940s, collected together by John Grimwade. We’ve come such a long way in terms of modern interface design but there’s still a beauty to these designs. Kilocycles, megacycles and references to the past British Empire and Formosa.<p>There’s an interesting variety of typeface styles – I assume chosen for their clarity at these small sizes – that includes both serif and sans serif, narrow, tabular etc.

Chocolate Ampersands

I’m a total chocaholic, so this packaging design seems a fitting tribute to my addiction. This concept was inspired by my research into the Pouchée wood alphabets. The illustrated ampersands matched with flecked, textured paper aim to evoke an early Victorian packaging feel.<p>While creating the lettering for the brand ‘Albert & Rose’, I thought the lettering would make a fun, layered typeface. It will be available soon in Narrow (as shown) and Wide versions.<p>Read more about the process here.

Áron Jancsó 1986 - 2015

Last year the typography world lost a number of its legends including Hermann Zapf, Adrian Frutiger and Bram de Does. Yesterday I discovered, with great sadness, that Áron Jancsó, an incredible young typographer also passed away.<p>Although many will be less familiar with Áron’s work, before the age of 30 he had published five innovative typefaces and produced an expansive portfolio of exceptional artwork. His departure from the design community before fulfilling his potential is a great loss and …
