The year 2020 marks the tenth anniversary of Commercial Type, one of the world’s leading independent type foundries. The team at Commercial Type has been exploring the history of fonts at St. Bride Library in London, uncovering long forgotten classic typefaces and bringing them back to life. In 2019 they launched a new foundry to release these faces, Commercial Classics. CT partner Paul Barnes will tell the fascinating and exciting story of this new foundry, of creating faces that capture the spirit of the original specimens and expanding them in a vibrant way for modern use.
