It’s not just about the money, it’s not just about the art. Five years of Commercial Type.

AIGA Austin presents:
It’s not about the money, it’s not just about the art. Five years of Commercial Type.

What’s your type? Commercial? Artistic? Both? Find out on September 23th as Paul Barnes of Commercial Type will talk about the processes behind the company's designs, balancing the needs for expression, self expression and functionalism. For the past eight years, agency partners Barnes and Christian Schwartz have been running one of the most exciting and influential type foundries, Commercial Type, with offices in New York and London. They have managed to create both popular and critically acclaimed typefaces for a diverse range of organizations, from the Guardian Newspaper, Vanity Fair magazine, to shirt numbers for Puma at the FIFA 2010 World Cup. Their designs vary from the utilitarian Graphik and Stag, through to the playful and expressive Dala Floda and Marian.
