“Typography for me is a visual language, through the form of which I try to convey my vision of the style of things. Each work to some extent reflects my passion at that moment, it is a ‘mirror’ that projects me. To draw a letter is not difficult, but to make from it a whole font with its small history is always a great adventure.”

What is the most memorable piece of typography you have come across? “There was a foundry in New York City from 1813 to 1901 called Bruce’s New York Foundry. The specimen book they produced in 1882 features their extraordinary and unique designs. This book is the most amazing typographic document I have ever seen.”

Moshik Nadav Typography — New York City, USA
What is the most memorable piece of typography you have come across? “You are asking me this question just after I have lost my father, Jacob Nadav, the most talented typographer/designer/calligrapher in the world. I learned everything I know today through him. The most remarkable thing that I remember about him — and always will — was his hand movements. He created amazing typography in just a few hand moves. Without any effort or planning ahead. Watching him creating new type was a true inspiration for me.”

“Design has to deliver something and the most effective way is through the letters themselves. It is a language. Which means it communicates itself. Therefore, I would contend that typography is the most powerful of design tools. It is always a pleasure for me to make letters, words, phrases and sentences gain attention. That process is what I would call typography.”

Lo Siento — Borja Martinez — Barcelona, Spain
“Almost all those created by Stefan Sagmeister are brutally original, and they pushed me to immerse myself personally in this field, where the letters move to a third dimension, becoming part of an organic habitat where they are transferred from the purely digital. I am also moved by all of Gordon Young’s work, where the typography changes scale to live with you.”

“Typography is a great way to express a message, communicate an idea or create something playful. The typographic work I make is created using CGI, which opens up a whole new way to approach type — making it look as if it has been made out of wooden blocks, metal, gold, plastic, fabric and so on. Most of the works start off as a thought or even a phrase I may heard of during the day that stuck with me, and then I sketch out ways that this expression could be translated into a beautiful type piece that when coloured, textured and lit in a CG environment will be appealing to the eye as well as communicating the message.”

What is the most memorable piece of typography you have come across? “I’ll go for Typographic Process, Nr. 4 Typographic Signs designed by Wolfgang Weingart in 1971 because it was one of the first designs with typography as the main element and the one that inspired me the most.”

“For me, the act of creating typography still has that magic that I experienced when creating my first typefaces. That moment in which, starting with sketches, modules and drawings of letters, words begin to take shape. Being able to modulate the language in a totally personalised way is one of the most attractive things when creating a custom lettering.”
