Typography

Work samples: Logotypes
Work samples: Book design and typesetting

Apart from making typefaces, I am passionate about using them. I spent many years focusing on this part: Selecting, testing, setting them; making them sing. I have successfully designed and typeset a wide range of books from scholarly volumes through little books of poetry; molding masses of text to be friendly to the reader and the content, from the proportions of the printed page down to the intricacies of microtypography. On the other end of the spectrum I have enjoyed working out the details of logotypes, where the question is to make just a few letters/shapes click together comfortably; balancing proportions, figuring out where exactly each point must sit.
