This week Olivia is joined by Steph and they are having a big old chat about trial fonts; what we like about them, what annoys us about them, their possibilities, and some of the creative ways foundries are using them / thinking about them as part of their marketing plan. (If you’ve got strong thoughts on trial fonts - we’d love to hear them, hit reply and let us know!).
As usual, we’re also talking about some type and design news. We chat about Katy Cadwell’s new NDA Podcast, and her recent episode about the highs and lows of comments on design websites and some fascinating behind the scenes insights from designers and platform owners. We pop in on our friends at I Love Typography to look at their recent article on fonts for books (which has lots of foundries and designers we weren’t familiar with), hop over to Chile to read about the Chilean typography scene guided by Franco Jonas, and then admire a rather nice piece of brand design on what is a rather serious financial service; life insurance.
You know the deal; 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.
