Monotype Imaging’s “Director of Words and Letters,” Allan Haley, wrote a piece for Communication Arts magazine with the theme “Five Young Typeface Designers and Their Former Careers.” Rob was honored to be included among four other very talented, “young” designers: Hannes von Döhren, Berton Hasebe, Cristóbal Henestrosa, and Julia Sysmäläinen.
Amazingly, three out of the five designers reside in Berlin. It’s a small design community, and this emphasizes how Berlin really is the Type Capital of the World. There are more type designers per sq/km in Berlin than anywhere else…
So, be sure to have a look at Communication Arts’ September/October 2010 Design Annual 51 to learn a bit about these five type designers and some of their latest work.
