Say hello to Android’s new default font, Roboto. The typeface will come packaged with Android’s upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich OS (4.0). Truth be told, I will likely sellout and get an iPhone once my current contract is up. Still, it’s cool that the Android team can design a unique typeface specifically for their UI. They could’ve gone the easy route, and used something like Helvetica (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

I’ve spent the last week or so dissecting and analyzing the layout of Wired magazine. As part of my research, I started to dig into the typefaces that the publication uses. I found that most (if not all) of the typefaces used in the magazine were designed by Hoefler & Frere-Jones.
It’s kinda funny… I’m supposed to be studying the layout of the magazine (“recreating the almighty grid”), but I’m more interested in the type choices.

Craig Redman lives in New York. Karl Maier lives in Sydney. Two designers separated by land and sea, yet they collaborate on a daily basis. Collectively, they are known simply as Craig & Karl.
These particular pieces are from their Monster Children exhibit.
