Underappreciated resource: Intuit QuickBooks has been so good for my solo studio. Other than that, I don’t think that much about tools of that variety. That said, I think that designers need to learn to use Sketch more and more. I have always been a print designer, but less and less do I have the luxury of avoiding making digital products. It’s the world we live in now.
The latest books: The latest is a funny term with typography because it doesn’t necessarily indicate “new type.” For my birthday, I got the gorgeous Aldus Manutius: A Legacy More Lasting Than Bronze book, designed by Jerry Kelly and published by the Grolier Club. It came out in 2015, but Aldus Manutius was a Venetian printer in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. And I enjoyed Carol Twombly: Her Brief But Brilliant Career in Type Design, a biography about the Adobe type designer’s career in the ’80s and ’90s. The one that is probably most popular—but also sooooo good—is the Paula Scher: Works monograph, published by Unit Editions. Get that one.
