Pierre-Yann is the Recto Verso studio’s art director and the creator of the Typologie typographic color chart collection. After the success of the first Typologie, dedicated to French foundries, he is expanding his collection with a new edition dedicated to Swiss foundries. That unique and ephemeral edition is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter. It features 18 Swiss foundries, including Grilli Type, Optimo, and Swiss Typefaces. The cover will be signed by the Swiss artist Rylsee and the item will include a preface by Roger Chatelain, author of La typographie suisse du Bauhaus à Paris.

There is a new online course for learning how to make Variable Fonts. Taught by Arthur Reinders Folmer, it is open to everyone who wants to experiment with variable fonts: graphic designers, creative coders, visual designers, type lovers, and type designers; both students and professionals of all levels of expertise. You can learn in your own tempo with 11 video lessons coving the process from letter creation to HTML & CSS browser animations. The goal is to make this new technology accessible and fun for everyone!
