Profiles – Gemma O’Brien {For the Love of Type}


Sydney based Gemma O’Brien is a lady with unquestionable passion and enthusiasm for what she does. A self-confessed type nerd, you could say Gemma went a little too far when she celebrated her 21st birthday by insisting everyone who came dress as their favorite typeface. This injection of energy and infectious passion Gemma demonstrates led her from the traditional forms of wooden and metal type, where she learnt her craft, into more experimental mediums; from […]

Cassaro spoke at this year’s Weapons of Mass Creation […]

Illustrator slash typographer pimp Spencer Harrison has an embarrassment of award riches. His work has been both published and exhibited and he’s spent time around the illuminati by way of a placement at design demi-gods Pentagram.
