A Monotype Imaging video of Robin Nicholas, creator of Arial, discussing his creative inspirations, favourite typefaces and thoughts on the evolution of fonts.

This video has been created to coincide with Monotype Imaging's public beta launch of Web Fonts (webfonts.fonts.com), a service set to revolutionise the web design and communications industry. Web Fonts takes advantage of the advent of cloud computing. In short, it allows web page designers, content creators, brand holders and others to access the widest range of fonts for designing web communications (branded sites, blogs and advertising), as well as personal sites and other materials. Previously, designers could only use a handful of system fonts that reside on most computers or ones that were embedded in graphics. Web Fonts completely opens up the world of typography to designers and brands alike who are looking to stand out from the crowd.
