I talked with David about Gimlet, his own type label DJR and new typefaces in progress.
Hi David, you recently founded your own type label DJR. What was your motivation? Which meaning does the Type Network have for you?
In recent years, I have taken a more active role in the licensing and marketing of my typefaces, in addition to the design and production. I have released my typefaces with Font Bureau for years, but we realized that I could take this further as an independent foundry. Currently, the font market is short on independent distributors, which is why I am happy that Type Network exists and that it encouraged me to join as an independent foundry. They have been very supportive of me as I’ve undergone this whole process.
