Doodle 4 Google Japan

The Doodle 4 Google event we designed went off surprisingly well!

40 happy kids won awards for their visions of the world 100 years from now.

The kids filing in…

Getting briefed prior…

and winning stuff!

Thanks so much to the kids, the amazing folks at Google and all of our friends who helped support this initiative!

In non- Google news, I’ve been given the honor of judging this year’s Typodarium along with type design & lettering legend Ed Benguiat, wünderkind Lucas de Groot, designer Boris Kochan and type design extraordinaire Veronika Burian.

Also, an interview I did five years ago or so with type designer Akira Kobayashi for the late PingMag is up over at Type Is Beautiful, translated into Chinese.
