In the Toronto Star today you will find an article about a person's preferred typeface. I was honoured to be interviewed alongside Rod McDonald. I thought it was going to be about how type influences people but it was more about the typefaces themselves — interesting. Under my picture is a quotation about what font the numeral 87 was, I mentioned I didn't know if it was a typeface per se, the rounded edges were probably so people wouldn't cut themselves and it was likely in the Helvetica or Arial genre of sans (particularly with the slope on the 7), I wasn't quite expecting to be quoted on that (yikes!) so please, I beg of all the type experts out there, don't rip me apart after reading this article! Overall, I thought it was an interesting read and I'm happy to see typefaces (not fonts, as stated through out) being discussed in the newspaper.

Also, last night I attended the typeclub to hear Rod McDonald and Dominic Ayre speak about digital typography, I will post a review later this afternoon or tomorrow.

I have been in Cuba, so that is why I haven't been updating the blog. Between Jenn and I, there will be lots of type from Cuba to be seen, like this one of a fishing boat in Havana named Anthony.

Also, I missed Patrick Griffin from Canada Type speak. If anyone was there, I would love if you posted a review.
