House Industries: Interview with Ken Barber by Gestalten Space

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 Gestalten Space in Berlin to give a workshop, which explored the creative process of hand-lettering and the application of illustrative letterforms in contemporary graphic design. They took this chance to interview him on where he talks about the necessity of specialization and the fine lines between lettering, typography, and font design.

They'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 their online shop,
