Neville Brody interview by Deezen

The pecha kucha I gave at David Gale’s Peachy Coochie Nights and BAC’s Burst festival gave a brief history of type in twenty fonts and ended with Neville Brody’s Insigna. Commenting along the lines that Brody’s faces and the fact he cut them from red film or a rotraring pen suddenly opened up the world of type design. With a call to the barricades his work gave me and a generation of graphic designers the confidence to create typography without thinking we needed to serve an apprentice with a foundry. With a Mac suddenly the graphic world was ours.

So I watched with great delight Nevile Brody talking about topics close to my heart including punk, London, t-shirts and fashion during an interview by Deezen for the Design Museum’s ‘Super Contemporary’ exhibition.
