I love a good exercise in thrift. Let’s look at a few different ways to save space while maximizing the effectiveness of the piece you’re producing.

Aad van Dommelen started developing complete (corporate) typefaces relatively late in his career, in 2000. Now, 15 years later, the veteran designer releases his first commercial type family – FF Aad™, a delicately angular sans serif family with straight finials and open counters, in a range of five weights from Light to Black with matching italics. I interviewed Aad about his life in typography and the origins of the typeface that carries his name.

In January the Club des Directeurs Artistiques announced the winners of their 46th annual awards. The role of this organisation is to reflect excellence in advertising and graphic arts, promoting it through multiple channels, and to encourage creation and nurture the talent of tomorrow. Due to the changing landscape the activities of the Club des DA aren’t restricted to advertising anymore, because creativity can be found anywhere. This is why the organisation has opened up itself to all the fields where it is expressed – broadcasting identities, video clips, photography, internet, design, and fairly recently typography since its 2011 Awards. The first ever jury for the Typography category was chaired by Jean François Porchez, who invited me to chair the 43rd Awards. The category is subdivided in five sections: Printed Advertising; Advertising in Motion; Editorial, Press, Catalogues, Visual Identity; Custom Lettering & Logos; Typeface Design. This year the jury selected Algo FY by Michel Derre as the best new original typeface.
