If you happened by the FontFeed recently, you’ll find an interview with Process Type Foundry partners Eric Olson and Nicole Dotin by Yves Peters. Go ahead, read the words. Sometimes, though, we just want to ogle the pictures. Here are photos from the interview along with extended annotations, outtakes and some extras.

The desktop version of Bryant, our warm and modern take on the geometric sans serif, features stylistic alternates that have been unavailable in our webfont packages – until now! Due to popular request, we’ve now made this typographic flexibility available, giving you more ways to use Bryant 2, Bryant Compressed, and Bryant Condensed on your site.
While stylistic alternates are becoming easy to access in desktop applications that support OpenType, browser support for these features online is still, for the most part, on the horizon. This means that translating this feature to webfonts requires taking a few more steps. We have broken the stylistic sets into separate font files to allow access to these special features on the web with @font-face or Typekit.
Already have a webfont license for Bryant 2, Bryant Compressed or Bryant Condensed? Just log in and go to “My Account” to view your recent orders and re-download Bryant to receive your free upgraded stylistic sets. If you are using Typekit to display Bryant on your website, you should find the new options in your font library.
Longtime Process Type Foundry collaborator Allon Kaye of Entr’acte sent along this 12″ sleeve using eight of our capital A’s. It’s probably best to let Allon describe the project:
“it’s an over-over-overprint of process [type foundry] ‘a’s for an event-only edition (15 copies) of a new 12″ (alpha, by jo thomas).
these were originally overprinted for an event called avoid. the printers ran too many copies, so i overprinted the ‘avid’ lettering (‘o’ was the centre hole) with a blocky, abstract ‘entracte’. i’ve been using these ‘reject’ sleeves for promos etc., but every so often i get to do something a bit more special with them.”
