About the site
The Typographer.org website is an eternally
evolving not-for-profit typography project.
its fifth and current phase, it is a joint project between David and
Yves Peters – David providing the bulk of news items and in the role of
publisher, with Yves writing comprehensive reviews of the cream of
recent typeface releases in his Bald Condensed column.
David Earls is a Brighton-based graphic designer with over 15 years industry experience across print, web and television. He sometimes designs typefaces for his own enjoyment, but considers himself a typographer rather than a typeface designer. He founded the site in 1999 in the hope it should provide fiercely independent voice on the web, with honesty, impartiality and independence of funding at its core. David is a published author on typography, with his book, Designing Typefaces, published in hard and softback by Rotovision.
David can't believe how much patience Yves Peters has, and how he has an
amazing ability to travel back in time to post to Unzipped. Ahem.
Regular columnist Yves Peters joined Typographer.org in 2005, where he
writes a column critiquing recent typeface releases.
is a [typo]graphic designer, rock drummer and father of three, whose
only claims to fame are a month's training at FSI/MetaDesign Berlin and
a three-year stint as type expert/technical advisor at the Belgian
FontShop franchise. He joined the Typophile community in 2002, where he
currently moderates the Type Identification Board.
writing for Typographer.org, Yves edits Unzipped – his blog for
FontShop Benelux – and makes occasional contributions to Typographica
and The FontFeed. His talent for being able to identify most typefaces
on sight is utterly useless in daily life.
