Week #5 was here, and somehow everyone managed to polish and complete not only a fully-fledged typeface, but printed specimens and screen presentations, delivered to friends, family, instructors and classmates on Friday, the final day. The entire TypeParis staff are extremely proud of the efforts of… Read more
