Ever want to ask a type designer what they think about X? Or, how do they do Y? Or possibly, how does one commission Z? Ben Kiel and Jesse Ragan —partners in XYZ Type— will virtually open their studios to answer your questions about typeface design and their practice. They will also show in-progress work and gems from their book collections.

Ben Kiel and Jesse Ragan make useful, quietly offbeat fonts at their independent digital foundry, XYZ Type, which operates in the interwebs between St. Louis and New York. After hiring each other back and forth and realizing they worked well together, the pair launched XYZ Type in 2017 to merge their respective strengths and extensive experience crafting typefaces and lettering for major brands, cultural institutions, and publications.
