NOBS February Forum Online 7:30pm-9:00 pm EST

Designing typefaces has undergone amazing changes since the 1450’s when the first movable metal type was used. In 1996 Russell Maret began teaching himself to design letterforms and in 2009 was awarded the Rome Prize in Design from the American Academy in Rome. Since 2011, he has created four new metal typefaces for letterpress. Join Russell and NOBS to explore the current state of the art.
