Recent stops and talks have taken place at the University of Reading, LCC, and at the RCA. The distinguished archives and collections of the Reading Department of Typography & Graphic Communication surpassed all expectations, and, the fantastic views of London from RCA’s studio spaces are nonpareil.

Florian Hardwig is in love with Axia’s ‘n’! He characterizes the arche’s zenith “refreshingly reckless”. Axia is praised for its “modernist” feel with many foreseeable applications. The accompanying Axia Stencil weights challenge analogue placements of bridges and visually play with gaps that are after all superfluous in digital type. We are simply delighted about Axia’s inclusion in Typographica’s Favorite Typefaces of 2012!
After delivering a lecture at the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin, Sibylle Hagmann also had the pleasure of leading a workshop for the school’s Communication Graphique students at the invitation of faculty member Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.
