Fontsmith type design director ⁦‪Phil Garnham‬⁩ recently worked with students at ⁦‪Middlesex University‬⁩ to design brand-new typefaces inspired by 'The Future Starts Here' exhibition at the V&A. I particularly loved Antenna by Iveta Rihova. ‘The font is created out of fluid, organic, free form lines, representing tree ring pattern as well as signal transmission. Whispering trees converted into letterforms with abstract approach shall bring the world of nature and technology together.’

Chloe Berry is a final year Graphics Student at the Manchester School of Art University. She recently reached out to talk to me about the value of working analogue as part of an assignment she was working on which explored a tension between Analogue and Digital Practice. I asked her to tell me more about her work, creative practice and the Analogue/Digital project for this latest installment of the Student Spotlight.

Northern Block published Spencer (designed by Sofie Beier) which was based on super interesting research into legibility, homoglyphs and commonly confused forms in typography. This calligraphic semi-serif has been carefully designed to provide easily distinguishable letterforms that are practical in use, as well as aesthetically appealing.
