Erik Spiekermann on the Beauty of Constraints
Gestalten.tv meets with Erik Spiekermann, who has been “suffering from typomania” all his life. Erik Spiekermann is one of the best-known typographers and graphic designers in the world. At his newly opened workshop P98A Gallery, this master tells us about the beauty of constraints, the heritage of letterpress printing, and his unusual entrepreneurship principles. This video also gives you a sneak peak into Gestalten’s upcoming Gestalten book Hello, I am Erik, the first-ever visual biography of Erik Spiekermann’s life and work. The book is written and designed by Johannes Erler and his office in close cooperation with Erik Spiekermann.
