Five Years of Commercial Type

It’s Not Just About the Money. It’s Not Just About the Art.

For the past five years, Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz have run one of the most exciting and influential type foundries, Commercial Type, with offices in New York and London. They have managed to create both popular and critically acclaimed typefaces for a diverse range of organizations, from The Guardian Newspaper, Vanity Fair Magazine, to shirt numbers for Puma at the FIFA 2010 World Cup. Their typeface designs vary from the utilitarian Graphik and Stag to the playful and expressive Dala Floda and Marian.

Join us for a talk from Commercial Type’s own Christian Schwartz about the processes behind their designs, balancing the needs for expression, self-expression and functionalism. The event will be held on Thursday, October 22, at MICA’s Fred Lazarus IV Center at 6:30 PM.
