Indra KupferschmidCritics, Instructors, Speakers, 2016, 2017
Indra Kupferschmid is a freelance typographer and professor at HBKsaar, University of Arts Saarbrücken, right at the border to France (but not speaking any French, alas). Fueled by specimen books and coffee, she is occupied with type around the clock and in all its incarnations – webfonts, bitmap fonts, other fonts, type history, research, marketing, DIN committees, design work, and any combination of this. She is co-author of Helvetica Forever by Lars Müller Publishers and other typographic reference books. She consults for the type and design industry, and everyone who needs help choosing fonts, writes for magazines, books, and websites/blogs, alongside juggling her own small and ultralarge-scale ventures.
