In the past five years, Commercial Type has quickly grown to be a respected and influential type foundry. Business partners Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz, and their New York-based staff, work closely with clients on diverse custom commissions, while simultaneously developing retail typefaces with an astute balance between aesthetic expression and functionality. In this lecture, the duo will discuss the evolution of their company, their trans-Atlantic collaboration, and the stories and thinking behind several recent typefaces.
