Quote of Note | Rich Roat

“Some designers are good at covering up influences or playing them down enough to make people think they’re doing something original. We celebrate our sources, publicize them, even introduce our customers, fans, and critics to something they never knew about and make them appreciate it. And maybe even get them to not rip it off.”

Rich Roat, co-founder of type foundry House Industries, whose elegant workhorse Neutraface is the subject of a rollicking (if mispronounced) YouTube tribute/Lady Gaga parody
