»Design made in Germany« with Jessica Hische

Letztes Wochenende wirbelte eine quirlige Amerikanerin über die Bühne der TYPO Berlin und das kann man durchaus wörtlich nehmen. Obwohl sie alles andere als »Made in Germany« ist – trotz deutschem Nachnamens – gehe ich an dieser Stelle mal fremd, denn wir hatten die Möglichkeit mit ihr ein kleines Interview über Design und Verantwortung zu führen.

Last weekend a lively American stirred up the stage of TYPO Berlin, literally said. Despite of her German surname, she is anything but »Made in Germany« but we will make an exception as we had the opportunity to conduct a little interview with her.

Elliot Jay Stocks: Tomorrow’s web type today

Let’s face the ugly truth: Typography on the web is still in an awful state. There may be countless positive things to be said about the internet, but fine typography is definitely not among them. In his talk on Friday, Matthew Butterick blamed this on low expectations: While most web developers (excuse the generalization) don’t care about good typography, most web designers have grown up with just a handful of fonts to choose from and still decide to stick to them. Consequently end users are accustomed to seeing bland, standard typefaces.


Petz Scholtus: Grün, grüner, am grünsten?

Kann gutes Design uns aus der ökologischen, finanziellen, emotionalen und sonstigen Krise führen? Petz Scholtus aus Barcelona begreift sich als Öko-Designerin und verweist einleitend auf die 10 Prinzipien von Dieter Rams aus den 70ern, um kurz darauf auf die Knappheit unserer Ressourcen zu verweisen und festzustellen: „good design is complicated“. Was für ein Ritt. Sie spricht schnell und hat die TYPO Hall auch schnell auf ihrer Seite.
