The Importance of Being Ernestine

TYPO Berlin 2012, 17.05.2012, 15:00 Uhr (TYPO Show)

A perhaps partly amusing account of Nina Stössinger’s very serious journey into the jungle that is typeface design: A tale of joys and challenges on the path to completing her first publicly released font family, and a musing on learning to draw, and learning to see; on the responsibility that lies in designing letters; on collaboration and self-sufficiency, substance and seriousness, passion and perseverance – on being earnest, and making FF Ernestine.
