An official selection at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, Font Men introduces the world to Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones – two names you might not know, but whose work you’ve probably seen. The two had a recent split, but before that they “collectively ran the most successful and well respected type design studio in the world, creating fonts used by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to the President of the United States.”

The mini-documentary gives a previously-unseen insight into the two design legends, covering both their work and how they made it to the top of the typography industry.
