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 possessed the skills needed to create a metal font.
This film is a unique opportunity to share Jim's knowledge, processes and passions with the world.
