Erik has been responsible for some of the world’s most popular typefaces and is firmly established as one of the most respected and active commentators on design, digital and creative culture. The author of multiple works on design and type, and the recipient of glittering accolades from both the creative and political spheres, Spiekermann divides his time between Berlin, London and San Francisco.
