Jonathan Barnbrook


Jonathan Barnbrook is a British graphic designer, who came to prominence in the 90’s. Typography has always played a major role in his work, and is often comprised of typefaces he has designed himself. He is also one of the most vocal designers advocating social responsibility from designers. Barnbrook has collaborated with Damien Hirst, and has made personal work that can be best described as “political”, “anti-war” and “anti-corporate”.

See for yourself: Barnbrook Design
His typefaces: Virus Fonts

You can read a very recent interview with him, that prompted me to write about him here.

Type Families Explored


Peter Biľak, who runs the Typotheque type foundry, and is co-editor of Dot Dot Dot magazine, has a good article that looks into type families.

Read it here: “Family Planing or How Type Families Work”

UPDATE: The Font Feed just published an article about type families. Check it out: “Styles, Weights, Widths; It’s All in The (Type) Family”.
