I haven’t done anything on/for Halloween in years. Last month I decided to get out of the house and pay tribute to the awesome typographer/designer Florian Hardwig. His “Neue Welt” portrait is something of a local legend, and in honor of this I set out to reenact it.
I know we both like type. If you are anything like me then you probably also have a slight addiction to following the latest updates and buzz in “the industry”. Us type geeks/nerds (pick your own adjective) tend to be rather social online – or at least interested in others’ posts. This leads to such a daily torrent of type news that it can become overwhelming to follow everything. Reading the important stories, then sorting through all the duplicate content to find those extra special nuggets is a chore. So a couple months ago Sonja and I started working on an aggregator to help deliver us the best type-related news with less work, in a way that is easier to skim and also more fun to browse. Meet Type News.
