Type talks | Jonathan Barnbrook: A Barnbrook Super Delux Ultra Karaoke Megamix

Jonathan Barnbrook is most well-known as David Bowie’s favourite graphic designer having worked on the designs of his last 4 albums. However he has had a long and distinguished career in type design being one of the original members of the ‘typographic new wave’ – a 1990s international movement that rebelled against the Modernist conventions of the 20th century in favour of the new freedom that the rise of technology and a re-found interest in the vernacular gave them. His typefaces MasonExocet quickly became part of the world visual language. Barnbrook continues to release fonts through his own company Virusfonts. He also runs the design studio Barnbrook, which works with a mixture of cultural institutions, activist groups’ and charities. He is well known for his collaborations with Adbusters, Occupy London, Damien Hirst and the Victoria and Albert Museum. The talk will, as the title suggests be a summary of his career up until this point.
