An Evening of Typographic Amity: Sumner Stone at TDC
September 29, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Type Directors Club and Monotype invite you to an intimate evening with Sumner Stone. The event will be highlighted by an informal interview of Sumner by Allan Haley, of Monotype. Actually, more of a typographic chat between two old friends, Sumner will be queried about Magma™ II – his newest typeface design – the careful reflection and typographic passion that went into the Adobe Originals, what drives his typeface design courses at Cooper Union, and what he thinks of the future of our craft.
“I created ITC Stone® Sans early in the era of typography on the personal computer,” Stone recalls. “Since then, technology has advanced, particularly regarding the resolution of screens and output devices in general. I felt I could develop a new design which would include more subtle features.” This new design became the Magma typeface family. As part of the evening’s program, Sumner will share the story behind this important typeface family.
In addition to some great stories, delightful refreshments and an evening of typographic camaraderie, everyone who visits the TDC on the evening of the 29th, will walk away with OpenType fonts of Magma II.
