This week on the show we talk all about type on the web. We discuss recent developments like Typekit, Font Bureau’s Permission table, and Spiekermann’s new typeface Axel. We also talk a bit about our own idea for a non-profit type foundry, a foundry based on donations that commissions type designers to design web fonts we can release for free on the web.
We’d love to hear your feedback about our non-profit type foundry idea. We’d also love to hear any news (or any corrections) about some of this new technology we’re talking about. Feel free to leave us a comment here, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find us on twitter @rbtlshow.
