MAKING FACES: METAL TYPE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Making Faces is a fascinating design documentary by Richard Kegler that captures the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist and type designer Jim Rimmer (1931–2010). Focusing on one man’s dedication to his craft, the film relays the details of creating a metal typeface, while also conveying this passion to anyone who values the “hand-made” in today’s world of convenience. Jim Rimmer’s good humor and intelligent description of his process make it an enjoyable viewing experience for those who are interested in how things are made.

Join Richard and AIGA Seattle as this film documents the creation of a new typeface from the preliminary sketches through the cutting and casting of a single letter.
