The idea of AI creating typefaces wasn't shocking at first, but it gradually made me think deeply about the type industry's future.
After lots of reading and discussions with fellow type enthusiasts, especially engaging threads on TypeDrawers, I've come to a realization. AI might shake things up, but it won't spell the end for the industry. Instead, I see it as a key player in pushing typography beyond its current limits.
After reading the insightful posts on TypeDrawers, especially this post, and chatting endlessly with type friends, I eventually came to a conclusion. AI may disrupt the type industry, but I don't think it will destroy it. Instead, I see it as a key player in pushing typography beyond its current limits.
Filip and I teamed up to write an article, ‘The AI Dilemma In Graphic Design: Steering Towards Excellence In Typography And Beyond’ We delve into both the near and distant future, exploring AI as a co-pilot and as an autonomous font generator.
But there's more – we also speculate on the future of type itself, imagining a world where static fonts, largely unchanged since Gutenberg's time, evolve into something more dynamic and responsive.
