EPISODE 12

THOMAS
JOCKIN


FOUNDER, PARTNER, TYPE DESIGNER.

"the capacity to read is not just a nice to have, it's actually a moral imperative. It's a huge issue, especially for designers in the type world... If there's any moral claim of what's the good for us (as type designers), it's people being able to read."

Make it easy for people to say yes.


In this episode, I speak with Thomas Jochin, founder, partner, adjunct lecturer and practicing type designer. We chatted about how he was inspired by the power of community to start a typographic meetup called Type Thursday. We also discuss his partnership with a fellow educator to tackle the daunting task of reading proficiency, and It has something to do with type.

Hope you enjoy our in depth conversation
