Jonathan’s presentation will include a place that sharpened lawnmower blades, a man who wrote a song about rubber, a book by Kafka, an album by Stravinsky, a French boxing champion, a key difference between Denver and Miami, a television personality who knows her type, the tragedy of the lobster roll, an unrelated fuzzy crustacean, a dysfunctional family, Slack mapping, “Butts Inn,” and Straight T & Round G. He will exclusively be discussing typography.
Jonathan Hoefler has been designing typefaces since 1989. His company, Hoefler & Co., is home to one of the world’s most distinguished font libraries, designs such as Knockout, Gotham, Mercury, and Archer that are known for both high performance and high style.
Hoefler has been awarded both the Prix Charles Peignot for outstanding contributions to type design, and the AIGA Medal, the design profession’s highest honor. A two-time honoree of the National Design Award, H&Co’s work is in the permanent collections of both the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
