In conversation with Erik Spiekermann

“From Desktop to Digital, and Digital to Analog” An interview by Gloria Kondrup. ATypI Warsaw 2016.

“From Desktop to Digital, and Digital to Analog” is an interview of Erik Spiekermann by accomplished letterpress printer Gloria Kondrup, Executive Director of the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography [HMCT]. After an extensive career as graphic designer, typeface designer, author, and entrepreneur, Erik Spiekermann returns to his beginnings. He has come full-circle by opening his letterpress studio Galerie P98a. Yet Erik’s ‘return to analog’ is not steeped only in traditional methods, but rather, he utilizes the components of both older and newer technologies. He explores the hybrid effects of these technologies on the design and use of typography from the ‘computer to plate’ letterpress printing of books, to the creation of large format posters that uses contemporary digital typefaces cut from wood and other materials by CNC routers, lasers and 3D printers. This interview will present a lively banter and discussion, engaging the larger audience in a personal conversation.
