I just found this great article by Dmitry Fadeyev kind of randomly. I was looking at other ideas for a logo design gallery forum of some kind when I came across Logo Spire.
As you can see, the creator of Logo Spire isn’t accepting submissions any more, so I contacted him to ask why. When he responds, maybe I’ll post about his reasoning.
However when searching more information about him I found his list of articles from a few year ago.
Fadeyev’s article on design reductionism, which specifically mentions typefaces designed by Fournier as a wonderful example of type design reflecting the time, place, and fashion of their creation.
