Interview in Chinese design magazine Design 360°

Asia remains a great terrain for us, our typefaces and our expertise. Next to having two major newspaper clients in India (Mid-Day, Mumbai) and in the Philippines (Philippine Daily Inquirer) who use Sindelar as their text face on a daily basis in their print editions, strong interest in our work has also emerged in China.

We were approached by the concept and design magazine Design 360° based in Guangzhou, China, to express our views on quality, legibility, and proper use of western type families. Design 360° is a bi-monthly design magazine published by Sandu Publishing Co. Ltd. dedicated to international design concepts and featuring outstanding worldwide designers. Issue no. 64 is focused on western typeface design in order to live up to the emergent relevance of western typefaces and western typography in China.

It was a pleasure and a great honour for me to be one of only four western type designers who was asked to talk about their work and their opinions in order to contribute to the knowledge and understanding of western type design among Chinese graphic designers.

Slanted #19 – Acorde is one of the super families

The current issue of the quarterly magazine Slanted – Typografie & Grafik Design deals with large type families, so-called super families. Due to their wide range of different styles (various weights, as well as widths or optical sizes) they are able to perform a great variety of different tasks and provide the typographer with a huge set of tools to choose from.

Acorde is one of the selected super families. It offers a large amount of different weights and was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. Next to the presentation of the selected super families, the magazine also shows a large amount of family photographs taking the term super family literally. Pictures of families from various places as well as portraits of royal families.

Design Journal and Rolf Rehe recommend Acorde

The Design Journal is a bi-annual magazine covering the issues of news design and journalism. It is published by the Society for News Design (SND), an international organisation for news media professionals and visual communicators. SND was founded in 1979 and has about 1000 members worldwide.

In each issue the international newspaper designer Rolf Rehe recommends three typefaces which are appropriate for application in newspaper design. To give the Design Journal’s readers the possibility of judging the qualities of the typefaces themselves, the whole magazine is set in the recommended typefaces.

In the current issue (No. 112) Acorde is used as a secondary typeface for text as well as for headlines and gives proof of its wide applicability in various sizes. »It combines cool, geometric letter elements with the warmth of humanist sans forms. This results in a friendly yet assertive appearance«, states Rolf Rehe.

DA Mitteilungen presents The making of Acorde

Since my article about the making of Acorde raised a lot of interest on the world’s most popular typography blog, I Love Typography (ILT), during autumn last year, I decided to translate the article to German and to make it specially available to Austrian designers with an interest in type and typography as well.

The article was published by Design Austria, Austria’s professional association and service organisation representing the interests of designers from all creative disciplines, appearing in its quarterly published journal DA Mitteilungen (issue No. 2/2011).
