TypeNotes issue no. three is available for download.
TypeNotes is a love letter to letterforms, a journal dedicated to typography and graphic design.
The magazine was launched by Fontsmith to celebrate a love of type and the craft behind making it, and explores all things type-based from a passionate and knowledgeable standpoint, drawing on the expertise of type designers as well as voices from across the creative industries worldwide.
Issue three was two years in the making and well worth the wait. It includes insight from Design Army, Noise 13, Chris Pitney, The Company You Keep, Construct, Adam Higton and Triboro to name but a few. Features include how Erik Brandt’s garage gallery went global, a treasure trove of typography at the BFI, a big typographic night out, creative opportunities with variable fonts, how to use symbols and set type properly, a guide to type styles, design heroes with Georgia Fendley, behind the scenes at St Bride type archive, Adam Higton’s sketches, how fonts are used by artists from Ed Ruscha to Tracey Emin, via Bob and Roberta Smith, and the Guerrilla Girls, and so much more!
The latest issue is now available to download and read at home.
