Typogui.de, Liberio and how to spot a good designerPosted: January 31, 2014
Benedikt Lehnert is the chief designer officer at 6Wunderkinder. He wanted to create a guide to typography for his team. So he built typogui.de and it is now one of the most popular typography guides on the web. Benedikt has a whole portfolio of these things, including various apps he has built over the past few years.
Cat is the lead designer at EyeEm. However she’s also building Liberio, which is getting rave reviews from e-book publishers that have been lucky to get beta access. Who knows where it can go from there & I am rooting for her.
My point is that the best designers are easy to spot. They aren’t happy with just working on one thing. They are also not happy at just making things look pretty. They are only happy when they can actually building things; many things. The best designers roam free.
