ARTICLE ON TYPE IN TODAYS IRISH TIMES

Nice article in todays Times by Joe Breen (former Irish Times managing editor – production, presentation and design). He talks about the importance of type design and gives a good plug to the ATypI (Assocation Typographique Internationale)
conference happening in Dublin at the moment (8 to 12 September 2010).

NICE COLLECTION OF VIDEOS FROM EXPEDITION TITANIC

'On September 1, 1985, Bill Lange was working the nightshift in the control room onboard the Knorr. In the early morning hours, the team made a historic discovery. 25 years later, Bill reflects on the discovery of Titanic and the current Expedition to document the entire wreck site.'


Check out the Youtube channel for lots more, all very interesting.

NORTON & SONS / E. TAUTZ


Very impressed with the look and feel for Norton & Sons / E. Tautz by Moving Brands. The mix of old and new in their type treatment is especially nice. The idea of developing a style which is influenced by traditional and contemporary aesthetics is one which I hope to develop throughout this project.

MAKING A START

Although this post acts as a test while I put some formatting to this blog, I hope to update here at least once a week for the foreseeable future. I'll be updating with links and images from everything I deem relevant to my Masters which I begin in September, 2010. This may take the shape of anything from Edwardian typography to steam engines. Pictured above is the RMS Titanic, my starting point.
