Erik Spiekermann on the podcast

I had grand plans to put out another jam-packed newsletter this side of the Christmas holidays, but a whole load of end-of-year deadlines got in the way. But maybe that’s not a bad thing..? I mean, perhaps all those lovely links would’ve just got lost in the festive chaos anyway.

So today I’m keeping it simple: I have some news and that news is that the third episode of my podcast Hello, type friends! is live — and my guest for this episode is Erik Spiekermann!

I recorded our chat back in the summer, when I sat down for a cup of tea with Erik at this house in London. We discussed his successes and failures, his latest typeface neue Serie57®, the relationship between paper and screen, and why Frutiger could very well be the typeface he takes to a desert island.

You can listen to the episode right now on Apple PodcastsSpotify, and hellotypefriends.com. 🎉 Oh, and, if you know Erik, you won’t be surprised to hear that there’s plenty of swearing in this episode, so, um, cover the kids’ ears!

Actually, there is one other thing I wanted to say: thank you for your support this year. Publishing this little newsletter continues to be hugely rewarding for me and I’ve got some big plans for it next year. Until then, enjoy the festive period and I hope you get to take a bit of a break. I’ll be sending many more type links your way in 2024!

Thanks for reading and please do email me if you’d like to geek out about any of the above — I always respond.
