      The typefaces of Georg Salden

      “With a storied career spanning over 60 years and hundreds of original fonts that speak to the aesthetics of an era, type designer Georg Salden is one of the most significant and diverse type designers of our time. Despite much of his work having a lasting influence on type culture, Salden remains relatively unknown internationally – a fact which may be due to his independence as a designer, never having worked for large font foundries.”
      Now available on LudwigType.

      Quality type: how to spot fonts worth your money

      “Graphic designers play a fundamental role in visual communication, whether in print or digital format. They sit between content and reader and, for better or worse, they shape the way the public interacts with information. So when graphic designers choose typefaces they have a responsibility to the reader that should be taken seriously.”

      On Kickstarter: Typologie, a French typographic palette

      “Typologie is an immersion in contemporary French type design, in its broadest, most eloquent and heterogeneous expression. The book takes the form of a color chart in order to illustrate the plurality of type design in France, and the multiple inspirations and compositions of the type foundries behind it, with their similarities and their singularities. In this way, this typographic palette is a gateway to a better understanding and knowledge of the world of French-style type creation.”
