As my main area of interest is the crossroads where typography and pop culture meet, I was happy to discover this little (quite literally) book. The tagline of Tasty Stories perfectly describes the content – “Legendary Food Brands and Their Typefaces”. Belgian type designer and Reading graduate Joke Gossé tells the story of over twenty brands in the food industry through the letters that grace their logos, packaging and advertising, tracing some of them back to the infant days of commercial art.
Last Friday, 12 June 2015, 93 design studios in Berlin opened their doors between 7 and midnight for a night shift – “Nachtschicht” in German, the nickname of the 4th Berlin Design Night, organized by Create Berlin. For the third time, Monotype’s FontFont and TYPO Talks teams welcomed visitors to attend workshops, presentations and typographic experiments in their office at Bergmannstraße 102.
