It’s always tough getting up on stage and public speaking, but when you’re up against Neville Brody in the conference schedule time slot, it’s next level nerves. That’s exactly what Lupi Asensio, Martin Lorenz and four very brave students were faced with.
I have to be honest. I actually thought the talk was about legibility and DIN the ‘typeface’. A favourite font of mine, and one that I still and always will hold in the highest regard, I saw the words ‘DIN’, ‘Albert-Jan Pool’ and then everything else was a blur.
There was no mention of The Guardian, Kate Moss, the exquisiteness that is the ‘Marian’ font, nor football. Except during the upfront disclaimer to say that there would be no mention of these things. In fact, it was mostly all about churchyards and gravestones, family trees in the town of Cornwall, generations of lettering, and a hint of american celebrity.
