Video tip: Tobias Frere-Jones – In Letters We Trust

As the title suggests, this presentation is about fonts that we inevitably trust. Font designer
Tobias Frere-Jones spoke about this complex subject last year at the Italian typography event, “Kerning”.
The American designer has done research in this area for several years, and in this lecture, he talks about the fonts in our everyday lives – on banknotes, for example, or our individual signatures, which have an emotional value, but at the same time convey our identity and verify documents. The talk covers many other font examples from our day-to-day lives.
