Typography has always been a passion of mine. As part of my university studies I covered such a wide range of creative options. Film, animation, photography, editorial design, branding and type design. There was always something quite peaceful about designing a typeface. It can be very technical based, but also quite expressive. Once the face is designed, that’s only the beginning of it’s opportunities.
