Type Tuesday: Systems of Type

September 8th, 2017

For Eye Magazine’s Type Tuesday on 5 September 2017 at The St Bride Institute, we gave a talk on our work within the historical context of systems approaches to type design and presented the story of the Eye 94 cover development. The event was concluded with a panel discussion chaired by John L. Walters (Editor, Eye) where we were joined by Simon Esterson (Art director, Eye) and Richard Owers of Pureprint (the printers of the 8000 variable data covers for Eye 94), in which we learnt, among other things, that the HP Indigo 10000 digital press is not a printer that can be sat on a kitchen table.
