Two modern type designers, Stefán Kjartansson and Neil Summerour, talk about how they became passionate about typeface design as well as their processes.
There are designers. There are designers who use type. But then there are the designers of type. MODA and AIGA Atlanta Student Board present a moderated panel discussion between two modern type designers who call Georgia home: Neil Summerour of Positype.com and Stefán Kjartansson of Armchair.
They come from different backgrounds and experience but both designers show they have a passion for creating typefaces to create a very particular voice. They will share their thoughts on the skills needed to design type, challenges associated with it, and will also answer questions from the audience.
