Interviews, part the First

April 1st, 2009 by Noam Berg

True, I should have started these a while back, but better late than never. Today I conducted a phone interview with Robert Slimbach at Adobe. Robert has produced many fine revivals and embodies the kind of approach to historical designs that I want to promote with my work. We had a lovely and informative chat. Robert’s not nearly as publicly visible as some other figures in type design, so I was lucky to have this opportunity to talk with him. I won’t be posting a transcript or anything (80 minutes is more than I have patience for) but some parts will probably show up in the final document.

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
