New work, new fonts, New Transport

Henrik Kubel takes the stage for Eye’s forthcoming Type Tuesday event at St Bride Library

Next week’s Type Tuesday event at St Bride Library in London features designer Henrik Kubel talking about his work as a type designer, including his collaboration with Margaret Calvert on New Rail Alphabet and New Transport, and his ongoing partnership with Scott Williams in the design practice A2/SW/HK. Other participants include Ben Terrett and Simon Esterson.

This is the second of Eye’s quarterly evenings at the Fleet Street venue, the scene of several previous Eye-associated events, including the Music Design conference in 2010, last year’s ‘Out of the Box’ archive night and the first Type Tuesday with Mark Porter – ‘The magazine now arriving at platform 15’ on 12 March 2013.
