Thomas Jockin / Type Thursday

“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, it’s people being able to read.

—Thomas Jockin, Founder, Partner & Letter

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, with Bonnie Shaver-Troupe and the Lexend typeface.

An educator, designer, and a creative catalyst, George is a native New Yorker who started a podcast in 2017, because he didn't like to write. He also wanted a way to learn and chronicle varied ways or making. We hope you enjoy his journey.
