Bonus Episode

Settle down children, and pull up a comfy seat - it’s story time.

Join Olivia and Micah in the reading corner for this week’s nerd alert where Olivia is talking all about the world of packaging design. She shares her early experience of doing bespoke event packaging, and then moving into more commercial packaging where she learnt all of the intricacies, politics, and legalities of big-brand packaging design. As usual, there’s also practical tips if you are doing packaging design, or would like to add it to your design repertoire.

As usual, we also chat about some other links and fun things. Monotype have gobbled up another collection of typefaces, our friend Elliot Jay Stocks has shared his experience of moving his website to use variable fonts, there’s some chatter about blocking web fonts for privacy reasons, and the London Fire Brigade have a charming new custom typeface.

You know the drill - if you’ve seen something cool on the internets that you think we should know about, you can let us know on Twitter or Instagram. You can find us @theleagueof on both platforms.
