House Industries

Interview with Ken Barber
Posted by Gestalten—12/2011

House Industries has been producing their premier league retro design and their true love… Fonts! Fonts! Fonts! since 1993. House Industries’ lead letterer Ken Barber recently visited us in Berlin to give a workshop at our Gestalten Space, which explored the creative process of hand-lettering and the application of illustrative letterforms in contemporary graphic design. We took this chance to interview him on where he talks about the necessity of specialization and the fine lines between lettering, typography, and font design.

Our House monograph is now sold out but we’re obviously huge fans and carry a range of House goodies at Gestalten Space and our online shop.
