Recorded during TypeCon2018: Xx in Portland, Oregon
Perfection is a great thing to strive for, but it can prevent growth. It encourages us to stay within the bounds of what we can do well, and discourages taking risks. What are we really scared of, and how does it hold us back? What can we gain from making mistakes?
This look at risk taking and mistakes will be framed around the typeface design process, and what we’ve learned from creating Future Fonts. It will include a new twist on an age-old question, “Do we really need more fonts… that are half-finished and probably have mistakes?” We can’t promise answers, but we sure will have fun with the analysis.
