Yves Peters

Graphic Designer, Rock Drummer (Ghent, Belgium)

Yves Peters is a graphic designer / rock drummer / father of three who tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob. Former editor-in-chief of The FontFeed, he has found a new home on FontShop News. Yves writes about type and talks at conferences. His ability to identify most typefaces on sight is utterly useless in daily life.

From Metal Scripts to Digital Writing

TYPO Berlin 2012, 17.05.2012, 18:00 Uhr (TYPO Stage)

Scripts have always fascinated font users. More personal than conventional typefaces, they infuse typographic communication with humanity and emotion. Designers of early scripts in metal type were mostly concerned with creating the perfect letter connections. Nowadays digital type designers try to make scripts look as if they were written by professional letterers, by programming intelligent features into OpenType fonts.
