Erik Spiekermann on Deutsche Welle TV

On the heels of having won the Federal German Design Prize 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award from the German Design Council, Erik Spiekermann is interviewed by Deutsche Welle TV.

From Erik’s SpiekerBlog: ‘Unfortunately, the English voiceover keeps calling me a “font designer” and refers to type faces as “letter fonts”. I insist that we design typefaces. Those are then made into fonts which is what you buy.’
