#119 – 2022 Retrospective
The Weekly Typographic
by The League of Moveable Type
1y ago
2022 Retrospective There’s a bit of a theme to this week’s articles, with a bit of a ‘using type on the web’ flavor to our links and discussions. Which is good because we get to pick Micah’s brain on some of these subtleties and clever tips on using type well in web designs. As we move into the end of the year (how?!) we’re doing a few end-of-year-y conversations. Starting with this one, which is a bit of a retrospective on the 2022 year in design. We’re revisiting the Monotype Type Trends report to see what came true, chatting about what we’ve seen in the world, and what we’ve been surprised ..read more

An interview with David Jonathan Ross We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; the conversations we have with people from around the type and design industry make our hearts very happy. And this week is another example of that as we got to talk to the one and only David Jonathan Ross, or DJR. He shares his insights on what’s happening in the type world, how he runs his type design business, and much much more. It’s a fun conversation, we hope you love it too. We’ve also got articles and things for you to read. A hot tip from DJR, a cool piece of type merchandise / marketing, an early 2023 ..read more

Emerging Type Tech Tools Over the last couple of months, we’ve come across a few fancy new tools and tech for designers / type designers that have had us talking. So this week, we’ve packaged all of those up in a nice box and presented them to you as an audio (and newslettery) gift. There’s some thoughts on AI+type, a serious upgrade to an existing type-creation tool, new things to make 3D design with, a super cool tool for making handwritten type, and a typeface funded by the future. If you’ve seen another emerging tech tool that you think we should have included, tell us! Hit us up on Twitte ..read more

Trial Fonts and Tribulations This week Olivia is joined by Steph and they are having a big old chat about trial fonts; what we like about them, what annoys us about them, their possibilities, and some of the creative ways foundries are using them / thinking about them as part of their marketing plan. (If you’ve got strong thoughts on trial fonts - we’d love to hear them, hit reply and let us know!). As usual, we’re also talking about some type and design news. We chat about Katy Cadwell’s new NDA Podcast, and her recent episode about the highs and lows of comments on design websites and some f ..read more

Tattoo Lettering We’re back on our regular schedule after last week’s fun detour to collaborate with the Interrobang podcast (if you haven’t listened to that one, it’s a fun one, so make sure you scroll back a week in your podcast player to give it a listen). This week we tried to get into spooky season mode, but the closest we got was tattoos, which took us down a pretty interesting route looking at the skill overlap between tattoo artists, letterers, and type designers and the different challenges when you’re working on a ‘skin canvas’ versus a digital or (non-living) physical canvas. We’re ..read more
