Xiaoli Li wrote a nice article about the Typographic Wall Calendar 2010:

Collected Quotes:

“…stunning reinterpretation of a calendar is a masterful example of how a designer can completely flip a genre signifier on its head. Geisler reimagines calendars in order to change the way we visualize time, and in turn, redefines what it means to save the date.”
Mike McGregor, Kickstarter, NYC

An interview with Typeradio

I am a big fan of Typeradio. I dreamed that when one day I would get interviewed on Typeradio I would turn the tables around and interview the interviewers themself. On Designmai 2006 my dream came true: Friedrich Althausen and me interviewed Donald und Liza from Typeradio on their own show. Listen to the Interview here → https://www.typeradio.org/loudblog/index.php?id=256

A world-premiers. This is the first time Liza and Donald themselves have to answer the 20 yes/no questions. Invited by students from Halle, Offenbach and Weimar, there is no chance to escape. Also not the legendary penis question and the Underwear question. Listen to this to meet Donald and Liza in person.

And after traveling the whole world to it is finally the time to reveal the often discussed & legendary list of best looking type-designers world-wide. Who is in the list? [typeradio.org]
On the picture: Sibylle Schlaich, Harald Geisler, Alex Branczyk, Designmai-Visitor, Friedrich Althausen, Liza Enebeis, Donald Beekman. (Thanks for the photo David.)
