In this episode we hear from two stars of the design world working at two global design firms: Marina Willer, partner at Pentagram and Nadine Chahine, a type designer and legibility researcher at Monotype.
Pentagram is behind some of the most pervasive logos in the world: the Serpentine, Hillary Clinton and Windows. Monotype is a type design firm who, with Chanine at the helm at the helm of the project, recently reworked Johnston, the typeface used across Transport for London.
Their fascinating conversation starts by exploring the restoration of London’s most important typeface. They discuss that now more than ever designers need to stick together for social causes, and what technological advances will prove to be a type designer’s biggest challenge yet.
