“For me, the act of creating typography still has that magic that I experienced when creating my first typefaces. That moment in which, starting with sketches, modules and drawings of letters, words begin to take shape. Being able to modulate the language in a totally personalised way is one of the most attractive things when creating a custom lettering.”
