typsnitt

When I design a typeface, I make a lot of tiny drawings that can be arranged into bigger things. It’s the connections, the space between them that makes it interesting. The structure of my lectures is similar: lots of small ideas arranged into a bigger thing. And it’s the connections, the space between the ideas where it gets interesting.

You can see this theory in action on Friday in Stockholm, where I’ll be talking about designing type, drawing, sketchbooks, machines, a book I wrote, underground rivers, storytelling, and smart phones.
