Typetoken

May 11, 2011

Typetoken is a new online magazine that discusses and reviews the world of typography, icons and visual language.

A collaboration between graphic designers Mike Sullivan of Mister and Mark Millic of Modularlab, and web developer David Cole of Mayfield Digital, typetoken features contributions from designers around the globe and aims to be a source of inspiration for those drawn to what’s new in mainstream and experimental typography and iconography.

The first post contains a video interview between dezeen magazine and Wim Crouwel for his UK retrospective exhibition at the Design Museum in London. Another post, Spacing system by Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert shows typesetting guides for the typeface, Transport, used in 1958 for UK road signage. It also has a video interview with Margaret Calvert. See Eye 78, where the late Paul Stiff explores why Kinneir and Calvert’s road signage has stood the test of time.
