Robert Klanten interviewed by PAGE.
Hello, I am Erik
Gestalten.tv meets with Erik Spiekermann, who has been “suffering from typomania” all his life. Erik Spiekermann is one of the best-known typographers and graphic designers in the world. Not only does he represent German typeface and corporate design like no other, but his work and companies he founded—MetaDesign, FontShop, and EdenSpiekermann—have also had an unparalleled influence on contemporary graphic design around the globe.
At his newly opened workshop P98A Gallery, this master tells us about the beauty of constraints, the heritage of letterpress printing, and his unusual entrepreneurship principles. This video also gives you a sneak peak into Gestalten's upcoming Gestalten book Hello, I am Erik, the first-ever visual biography of Erik Spiekermann's life and work. The book is written and designed by Johannes Erler and his office in close cooperation with Erik Spiekermann.
