Creative Characters: Monotype enters the podcast arena
Aptly named Creative Characters, the bimonthly new podcast series explores “the trends shaping the future of design, branding and creativity with thought leaders at the vanguard.”
The first episode of Creative Characters which aired this week features James Sommerville, co-founder of KNOWN_UNKNOWN and former VP of Global Design at The Coca-Cola Company.
Recently the renowned creative expert with more than 30 years’ experience designing for brands such as Coca-Cola, Adidas and Virgin gave a keynote presentation on his career journey and the future of creative work at Brand Talks Connected EMEA.
“As our collective industry aims to galvanize the significance of creative work in a new economy, who better to elevate the role creativity plays in building meaningful brand experiences than the designers, agencies, foundries and technology providers behind them” said Alice Palmer, SVP Marketing at Monotype.
“Creative Characters is an opportunity to celebrate the stories of the people who make us proud to be part of this industry and are defining a vision for the future. We believe that the value of creative work is only increasing, and Creative Characters is a piece of a broader initiative we are taking to illuminate its significance.”
As an organization with deep expertise in typography, this podcast is being released shortly following the launch of Monotype’s Up and Coming series, which seeks to profile new and emerging faces in the world of type design.
