This is the deep story of the creation of the Typedia logotype. I had met Jason Santa Maria through our mutual friend and design colleague, Dan Mall. Dan had told me that Jason (at the time, aided by Khoi Vinh) was putting together a major compendium of typographic matter for a website under the name of "Typedia."
We're very pleased to take the wrapper off Typedia, a community website to classify typefaces and educate people about them. We love type, and we have a burning desire to learn as much as possible about typefaces: where they come from, who made them, and why they look the way they do. We want everyone to be able to share in that rich knowledge and enjoy the art and artists of type design.
