Swashbuckler Si Scott

Typographica on October 23, 2006

Si Scott

Portugal’s Type for you (a fairly new kid on the typoblog block) recently interviewed Si Scott, the fellow who is at least partially responsible for the dramatic increase in swashy lettering seen on the web and in advertising over the past few months. The difference between Scott and the flourishing bandwagoneers? Scott can actually draw.

Nothing too earth-shattering in the interview, but the video is a nice little window into his process.

Also at Type for you is an interview with unsung type designer Andrea Tinnes.
