In March, a team from a new print magazine named FRM – The magazine on the Frankfurt Rhein Main metropolitan region visited me at Linotype in Bad Homburg. Their summer issue is dedicated to creativity in the Frankfurt region, and was out in time for the ADC meeting. This week, Rhein-Main TV broadcast a five-minute-long video version of the article.
After an introduction describing the ADC meeting, the following creatives are interviewed:
- Mike Bouchert, an American artist in Offenbach
- Shantel, a musician in Frankfurt
- Crytek, video game developers in Frankfurt
- and myself
The entire film in is German. The primary segment on creativity in the Frankfurt area runs from 00:48 to 05:56. I come up at 04:58, and am gone by 05:56. The remaining eight minutes of video covers additional local topics.
There is one small error in the narration that I would be remiss not to point out: in both the print magazine, as well as in the video interview, it is mentioned that my Malabar was the first typeface to win the German Design Prize. Malabar is the second typeface to receive this recognition; Erik Spiekermann and Christian Schwarz received the honor for their DB Types in 2007.
