Typodarium 2020

Breach in Typodarium 2020

Typodarium is a 365 day tear-off calendar with a fresh font for every day by 244 Designers from 33 countries. It includes three of my fonts: Madagascar (Tuesday 7 April), Planetarium (Monday 20 July) and Breach (Saturday 24 October). Typodarium 2020 is compiled by Lars Harmsen and Raban Ruddigkeit and published by Verlag Hermann SchmidtIt shows a bi-scriptual font family every Sunday in addition to typedesign from all over the world. There are differences between Arabic and Hebrew, Japanese and Latin, but visually also many similarities. Communication overcomes boundaries and communication needs writing. Typodarium 2020 celebrates the colorful diversity of typefaces.

Some of my work is included in the Artists in Craft exhibition at the Cill Rialaig Arts Centre in Ballinskelligs, Co. Kerry. I am grateful for the opportunity to have spend a second week at one of the cottages at the retreat, making new work, meeting old and new friends, experiencing the peace, focus and beauty of the place and even visiting Skellig Michael.
