Type SketchesMonday, February 14, 2011

Like most people I do my best doodling during meetings or phone calls. That's why this section is called “Minutes.”

Because my day job is director of type for Veer I spend a whole lot of time thinking about letterforms, and not surprisingly that has dominated my sketchbook for the past year.

I've collected a few highlights here for your amusement.

I love this! I love doodling during meetings too. Sometimes/usually it’s more productive than the meeting itself!

I think the literal part of your mind is focused on the meeting and that allows your creative mind more freedom. My favorite kind of multi-tasking!

I LOVE your work. I consistently discover new and exciting foundries and fonts through you and your wonderful stuff. (I actually had the pleasure of attending Ken Barber’s class (Type at Cooper) and you were in it, too.)

Keep on doing what you’re doing! It is so inspiring!
