“Upping Your Type Game”

jessica hische on type
My favourite letterer Jessica Hische just posted a fantastic article all about type. It is a must-read for anyone who has weaselled their way into a design position and hasn’t actually taken a type class (this woulda been handy when I worked at Electronic Arts).

The post includes her favourite type designers, an unbiased list of font resources, and a whole slew of things to think about when choosing typefaces.

Read it here.
