For Type Geeks …

My husband and I were once graphic designers (back in the 80s in NYC) … and although we rarely flex those muscles any more now that we’re both in the education biz¬†(except the occasional t-shirt and poster here and there), we still have a habit of playing “name the typeface” when watching movies. Those raised on computers would roll their eyes (read: daughter) when we start debating whether the curve of a serif is more Palatino than Century, or whether Kabel has more style than Helvetica … possibly only those of us who used to painfully set headlines on a typositor¬†would understand …

For all of us, here’s a brilliant video celebrating “A Brief History of Title Design” by Ian Albinson:
