A bursting bubble, tumbling stocks, bears, bulls and futures for sale. Modern markets are obscure, unpredictable and dangerous places. But they also dictate whether you have access to necessities like toilet paper and water, whether your job will still exist tomorrow and whether you can buy a cup of Columbian light roast on your morning commute or not. To get what you want, you have to navigate the flow of trade and exchange. Sell what you have – your labor, your possessions, your first-born child – and buy what you can. Everyone does it. So how do you? Which markets are you a part of? What are you buying? What are you selling? And at what price?

“We believe that if there is a good concept behind the pack, we don’t need anything else. The communication has to be clear, simple and honest to the consumer.”

"Good design is one that benefits all mankind, whether its influence is large or small. Those who have exiled themselves to big foreign cities such as New York, Paris and Tokyo, and have won lots of awards, will never be an example for me, because I think there is still a lot for me to do here and a long way to go."

The collection is described as "a glimmer, a touch, a place, a continuity, a dream, captured within suspended streams of consciousness".

As Types Grow Older – Re-issuring 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' – Cologne, Germany

Felix Braden’s very first typefaces 'Sadness' and 'Grimoire' have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry he had to ask himself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of his 20 year old fonts? 'Sadness' was based on experiments during his stay at the Trier College of Design, 'Grimoire' on the other hand combines two seemingly contradicting principles – calligraphic and constructive ideas – and makes them work together. The font is based on a modular system but simulates a handwritten typeface. Both fonts are available for €5 at Myfonts with a introductory discount of 80% until 19 MAY.

"For me, a good design is one that is as long-lasting as possible. The most rewarding experience for me as a design professional was a short film I made about my design called The Daily You, which made some of the audiences that saw it cry."
