Type is one of those elements that I use it every day, I could not do my job without, and yet as much as I know about it, there is even more that I do not know. That’s why I find it such a great opportunity to speak with guests like Allan Haley of Monotype Imaging. Allan knows more about letters than I ever will, so it was great to have him on this episode of The Reflex Blue Show.

Joined by co-host Ben Lueders, we talk about Monotype Imaging, web fonts, how to become a type designer and the hardest letter in the English alphabet to design.

We also speak a bit about his 2012 HOW Conference presentation (Allan is one of the speakers) coming this June in Boston.

We’ll be back in two weeks recapping the ads from some football game. See you then!
