My passion for designing typefaces came about as a result of a general dissatisfaction with the quality of freeware/shareware typefaces available on the Internet, many of which were of the “grunge” and “handwriting” variety. I started designing typefaces in the mid 90’s using an Amiga program called TypeSmith, which came free on a magazine coverdisk, and I quickly became hooked. The goal was to create high-quality multi-purpose fonts that would not look out of place as body text in a magazine.
The bulk of the typefaces you see here were designed in the early to mid 2000’s. After a long hiatus, I’ve now rediscovered typeface design, and armed with copies of Glyphs and FontLab 7, am now exploring how font technology has evolved. I’m currently designing a new variable font, Llawen, which includes ligatures and stylistic alternates.
