    Alexandra Korolkova 1/1

    Alexandra Korolkova is the principal type designer at Paratype and a teachter of type design and typography in Moscow. In 2013 she was awarded with the prestgious Prix Charles Peignot, so we ask her about how the award influenced her career, and her statements on the design of Cyrillic in her acceptance speech at Atypi 2013 in Amsterdam. Does designing Latin or Cyrillic make any difference for her?
    We asked her about her heroes, the fast developments in Russian type design of recent years, and the awareness of typography in Russia in general. Alexandra further talks about her book Living Typography, that has been published in the meantime , and her ‘dream project’ PT Sans and PT Serif.

Later he received a MA degree from the Type & Media course at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

For several years he was also an art-director, when In 2014 he founded CSTM Fonts with Yury Ostromentsky.
    Ilya talks about how Alexander Tarbeev introduced him to type and typography. And about his first type design project, back in 1999. After his studies Ilya moved back to Moscow. We talk about the different projects that he did over the years. How he has been working as a graphic designer during the day and as a type designer during the night. We also wonder how he became, for western type foundries, the go-to-guy for the cyrillic extension to a certain type family. And because it’s one of his favorite questions on Typeradio, we ask Ilya about his drinking habits. Recorded at the Serebro Nebora 2015 Conference in Moscow, Russia.

    Richard Hollis 1/1

    Born in England, Richard Hollis has been a freelance graphic designer since 1958. He has worked as a printer, art editor, production manager, writer, teacher and lecturer. Hollis taught at various London art schools, as well as co-founded, with Norman Potter, the Graphic Design Department at the West of England College of Art in Bristol in 1964. His book design includes John Berger’s ‘Ways of Seeing’, and a large body of work for the Whitechapel Art Gallery. He has also made a significant contribution to the history of graphic design in through his books including ‘Graphic Design: A Concise History’.
    In the interview with Richard Hollis we talk about his personal values. And how your own values are expressed through the way you work and the way you behave towards the people you’re working with or working for. Richard explains how he hardly ever changes typefaces. He always uses the same typefaces in making catalogues and books. We wonder, apart from the kind of job or the topics that he’s designing for, if his political views can be seen in his design work. We also talk about his fascination for Swiss Graphic Design and he explains why he has written a book about the topic: ‘Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style’. We end the interview with how a painting of two tortoises, that Richard has seen at the Mauritshuis, is related to writing. Recorded at the Karel Martens Symposium at KABK, The Hague, the Netherlands.

    Dan Rhatigan 1/1

    Dan Rhatigan is a type director at Monotype, based in New York. He works on custom type development projects and consults on typographic issues with customers, and from time to time he gives talks about type and typography. Prior to Monotype Dan worked as a publishing technologies analyst, as a designer in New York, and with numerous freelance clients. Over the years, he has also taught graphic design, typography, and branding.
    We talk with Dan Rhatigan about his role and tale as a type director at Monotype. We’re curious if they get a lot of submissions and if Dan also judges these himself. Dan also gives us his view on the major developments in the near future for typography and type design. We wonder how he looks upon the lack of knowledge some users have working with OpenType. He explains how he is regularly surprised how little the world outside of type design really understands about the sophistication of the tools that are being prepared for them. And of course we talk about Dan’s typographic tattoos and wonder if he has plans for a new one. Recorded at the Robothon 2015 Conference in The Hague, the Netherlands.
