Talking about type & design — live!

Talking about type & design — live! from John D. Berry on Vimeo.

On April 25, I was interviewed for a podcast on design by Uta & Chris Ritke of 49Sparks. I had just spoken to Jean-Benoît Lévy’s typography class at San Jose State University, where the students were studying newspaper design. Jean-Benoît had given his students a class project: to re-design the Street Sheet, a monthly tabloid newspaper produced by and for the homeless population of San Francisco.

Uta and Chris had previously done a podcast about this class project, showing Jean-Benoît’s students trying their hands at hawking the Street Sheet on Market Street and getting a direct sense of what the paper was for and what its design had to do.
