Programme

The heart of my letter, (and the online version).

Monday 26 October, 10:10 (40 minutes)

Mr. David Berlow, President, The Font Bureau, Inc.

Ten years ago, while Font Bureau was building its Readability Series of typefaces, I took on the lowliest of the development and drew one set of type styles that was targeted for very specific use, the most specific I'd ever designed. So, I made up my mind to try something that I'd wanted to design in a type used more generally, but was afraid user's would notice. I did what I wanted to the type, it went to thousands of designers, tens of thousands of composers, millions of users and through billions of reads, and nobody noticed, (which in type design, means it worked). I forgot about it myself, until it came time to gear up for web fonts.
