“My graduation typeface Shequalin was designed around the urge to create a visual voice for sophisticated, humorous literature. Be it satirical or Dadaistic poetry, escapist or fictive novels, Shequalin seamlessly suits works by masters of the comical word. To maintain the reader’s alertness, it rhythmically drops in oddities without distracting from the reading flow. Roman and Italic are designed to render a dynamic sense of tension. It’s inspired by many flamboyant Baroque typefaces and arts.”
