45min · Documentary · 15 January 2011
This fascinating design documentary captures the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). In 2008, P22 type foundry commissioned Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font. Rimmer was one of only a few who possess the skills needed to create a metal font. This film is a unique opportunity to share Jim's knowledge and processes with the world.
