You too can type in font of wisdom
“If you could write like Einstein, would it help you to think like Einstein?”“A computer pro- gramme cannot retrieve the sensuality of the writ- ing process. What it can do is introduce the idea to younger readers that the reading of handwriting is not a chore but a pleasure worth preserving.”“May it inspire those imprisoned in exam rooms to re-interpret their dreams.”“ingenious new technology allows one to write on the computer in the authentic lettering of admired heroes”

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.)
