Here’s a neat short film on the greatest typographers of our time, Jonathan Hoelfer & Tobias Frere-Jones. The video (commissioned by the American Institute of Graphic Arts) commemorates “H & FJ” winning an AIGA Medal in 2013. Unfortunately, the two split at the start of this year, but the foundry continues turning out typefaces — minus the FJ — as “H & Co.”

Robert Samuel Hanson’s illustrations may be simple, but his wit and colors are what make his work stand out.

I really liked this 8-minute video on the inner workings of the NY Times Interactive Graphics Department. I had no idea they did such amazing work! This inspires me to dig around the nytimes.com site a little more.

In an interview with The Atlantic, the designers recommended these books from Gestalten:
Data Flow 2: Visualizing Information in Graphic Design*
Turning Pages: Editorial Design for Print Media*
Visual Storytelling: Inspiring a New Visual Language

Read the accompanying article here.

(* I really want these books! I saw them at the Breda Graphic Design Museum and regret not picking them up then.)

FF Chartwell is a typeface that generates graphs for you! I’ve never seen anything like it. Very impressive.

A general guide can be found here on the FontFont website. Buy the whole family for $129, or try out one font (I’d go with Chartwell Pies) for just $25.

I love the illustrations, and the brown paper bag best.
