Creating typefaces takes time. It’s a delicate process that involves numerous rounds of revisions, decisions and sometimes even abandonment of the whole project. This catalogue functions as an accessible inventory of fonts that are «In Progress»; to start a conversation about their existence and potential in future designs.

ELAPHUS (WT)

With great support of ↗ Bruce Kennett and others, I was able to get my hands on original drawings of an unfinished typeface by W. A. Dwiggins for Linotype in 1947. I wanted to keep a warm and organic quality within my interpretation for a lively texture, in true with Dwiggins’ intent and style. For the Italics I went back even further in time, to one of the best punchcutters to ever do it: Robert Granjon and his «Gros Romain» from ~1550. This project is in a very early stage and a display version with a modern twist will soon be the counterpart to this classic, soft text-face.

My practice is focused on typographic systems but includes custom typefaces, letterings, graphic design and art direction. Most of my work is derived from historical models in order to re-contextualize their function in a contemporary setting.
