Try to imagine this: around 50 graphic designers, laptops, cameras, a mixing board and a fast internet connection all crammed up into a small room at the 35th floor of a Berlin hotel. This was the scene Wednesday night as the SYNTAX crew gate-crashed the temporary headquarters of Type Radio.
Type Radio is, usually, a podcast about, you guessed it, type design. But as we walked into the room on Wednesday, these guys were already into their 15th hour of their 16th hour internet broadcast! And we found ourselves the “surprise guests” of the last hour.
Quite unprepared for the Jordanian invasion of the studio, the hosts of the show were still able to come up with some good questions about design in our part of the world. Issue covered: iranian design, women in design in the Middle East, street signs and other stuff. I will post a link to the talk if it ever gets published as a podcast.
If you don’t know type radio check it out now. The have tons of great interviews with graphic designers and type designers. Worth subscribing to.
The tired hosts
