Erik Spiekerman-Interview mit Gestalten.tv

Schönes Interview mit Typolegende Erik Spiekermann bei Gestalten.tv. Seine FF Meta wurde übrigens grade vom MoMA in eine neue Sammlung digitaler Schrifttypen aufgenommen.

Typographer, graphic designer and businessman Erik Spiekermann has created timeless, influential and, yes, Meta-physical work over the past three decades.

Next to founding MetaDesign and FontShop, the latter being the first ever digital distributor of fonts, and designing more instant classic typefaces than any other, he has been recognized as an outstanding expert internationally.

Listen to the design genius talk about new visual languages, design processes, the analogies of music and typography, and why we need better client culture in our latest Gestalten.tv video and you will easily realize why. Before heading to new visionary pastures, the bike enthusiast will make a short stop to receive the German Design Lifetime Achievement Award 2011 in February.
