New Brief

Today we were given a new brief which was all about the website 'Type Radio', The idea of the brief will be to transcribe a recording of a designer that we pick. The problem was that i wouldn't be able to pick the designer or typographer, it would be picked out of the hat.I managed to get Erik Spiekermann and wasn't sure whether or not it was a good idea, because I had seen some of his work earlier on in the year in the Helvetica film. he of course designed the typeface Meta and a few others during his successful career.
After looking at some of his design work i was moderately impressed with his work, and thought could only bring good things when I went to listen to the type radio interview on Erik.
