House Industries: Interview with Ken Barber

by R27 CREATIVELAB on Tuesday, 14 February 2012

House Industries has been producing their premier league retro design and their true love…Fonts! Fonts! Fonts! since 1993. House Industries’ lead letterer Ken Barber recently visited us in Berlin to give a workshop at our Gestalten Space, which explored the creative process of hand-lettering and the application of illustrative letterforms in contemporary graphic design. We took this chance to interview him on Gestalten.tv where he talks about the necessity of specialization and the fine lines between lettering, typography, and font design.

We've sold out of their House monograph but are obviously huge fans and have a range of House Industries items at Gestalten Space, and available through our online shop, shop.gestalten.com.
