“Pensum, one of my largest font families, started as a contrast exercise during my studies in The Hague at the KABK type media masterclass in 2009. First sketches were based on my brush writing. The exercise included a rough sketch of a possible no-contrast and high-contrast idea. I took all the time I needed to test a lot of details you can add while digitizing type. I wanted to create a modern text typeface with a classical touch. To complete the trilogy I first added Pensum Display, because the big client Neue Zürcher Zeitung paid upfront for it.”
