Subject: Just thought I’d let you know.
Hi David. I just wanted to thank you for being so passionate.
I am a 21 year old student, studying visual communications and illustration in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I first heard about you when My studio professor had us watch the film Helvetica. I loved the film in general and particularly enjoyed the individual opinions and expressions of each designer/teacher/illustrator/researcher..etc who was in the film. You stood out the most however, with your passion for typography. We all loved your examples on the wall of words written in Helvetica, and how much the typeface did not express their meaning. Your concepts are truly unique, and are those things that I am always thinking about, but don’t quite know how to express them.
I took on a summer practicum this year, Choosing Typography as my subject to research. I am creating a handbook for students filled with useful information and examples. More importantly, it is filled with passion, passion for typography, and design that I am happy to say I feel, thanks to people like you.
Have a great day.
