THINK Audio: Fun with Fonts

by Jerome Weeks 8 Sep 2011 11:29 AM

What’s up with Helvetica these days? And why did we ever develop so many typefaces. THINK host talks with Simon Garfield, author of Just My Type.


THINK host Krys Boyd discusses the history of typefaces, how were they developed, what happened when they got computerized, how to spend a day without Helvetica, why people just love/hate Comic sans and what did author Simon Garfield think was the ideal font for his book, Just My Type: A Book about Fonts.
