Erik Spiekermann: Putting Back the Face into Typeface

A very well produced interview with Erik Speikermann. I was particularly taken by his take on a few points of the design process:

1. His Creative Process

I look at design inspirations for a long time - I look through books, on the internet and then I begin to sketch what I have seen. Then I put it all away for sometime. The next day (or next week) I sit down and draw it from memory - and then it is different. It is what I remember these design inspirations are be, but it is never the same as the original.

2.Teamwork

Most things I have done have been with other people. My responsibility is to show people that the design process is always teamwork, there are no geniuses, no single incredible person that can do it all of this.
