I was lucky enough to attend the launch of Brisbane designer, typographer, publisher and printmaker Nicole Phillips’s Typograph.Journal this week. It’s always encouraging to see someone take their labour of love out of the comfort zone of digital to a printed volume, and Nicole has dived in head first.
The debut volume contains interviews with Stefan Sagmeister, The Hungry Workshop, The Counter Press, and GraphicDesign&, to name a few—along with a series of tools to encourage creative confidence and continued learning within the creative community. Written candidly by designers for designers, the text is conversational, experimental, self-generated, personal expressions about design theory, practice and process.
And it’s available online for only $15... So do yourself, local publishing, and labours of love a favour and grab a burgeoning typographic tome.
