The MoMA, in New York City, has a new exhibition scheduled this year that is a little different than what you would normally find in the gallery. The exhibition, titled Standard Deviations: Prototypes, Archetypes, and Families in Contemporary Design, will feature work that seeks to put the designer’s individually into a piece that would otherwise be lost in the digital age. The work will include 23 typefaces, included those above. I hope I will get up the City this year to check it out!
Oakland, Zuzana Licko (1985).
You Can’t Lay Down Your Memory Chest of Drawers, Tejo Remy (1991).
Big Caslon, Matthew Carter (1994).
Gotham, Jonathan Hoefler & Tobias Frere-Jones (2000).
Interstate, Tobias Frere-Jones (1993-95).
This exhibition reminds me of a poster I made in college. The font used is Snell Roundhand, by Matthew Carter.
