ABOUT







Wolfgang Weingart

Swiss typography teacher (b. 1941) at the Basel School of Design/Switzerland since 1968. Interview. Brief CV. Author of Wolfgang Weingart: Typography (2000), a text called arrogant by Stuart Bailey. I bought the book, and must say that the ratio of message to volume is rather small. Adam Rotmil comments on his exceptional teaching capabilitis just before Weingart's retirement from HGK Basel in 2004. A famous Weingart quote, cited in Revival of the Fittest, Digital Versions of Classic Typefaces (Philip B. Meggs&Roy McKelvey): Four typefaces are enough to address every typographic problem. Every digitization of an old typeface is, for me, a fake. Another quotation: Anyone who uses Helvetica knows nothing about typefaces.
