type design

“My relationship to type design started whilst studying design back in the 90s with a highly influential app called Typographer which allowed users to open up existing fonts and ‘look under the hood’ of typeface and font design at the time. This coincided with an experimental period of design—often short-handed as ‘grunge’—which was a reaction to the introduction of commonly available digital means of typefsetting and print design, and an urge to make the digital appear rough and organic somehow.
