Interview With Sumner Stone For TDC’s Type Legends Series

This weekend the Type Directors Club of New York posted an interview with Sumner Stone conducted by Nick Sherman on their Vimeo account. It is the latest instalment in their Type Legends series, which also features interviews with Mike Parker, Ed Benguiat, and Erik Spiekermann. The iconic type designer recounts his career in type design, from his early days in Reed College, Portland, Oregon, where he became interested in calligraphy. He then retraces his steps from working at Hallmark to witnessing the digital revolution, leading the Type Department Adobe where he hired Robert Slimbach and Carol Twombly into the the Adobe Originals program, and eventually running his own Stone Type Foundry.
