I was very happy when I found out that five of my fonts feature in Typodarium 2014. Typodarium is a daily dose of type design, a tear-off calendar, like the one our grandma used to hang in her kitchen, unveiling a new font every day: 365 fonts by 232 designers and foundries from 26 countries. On the front, the font is prominently displayed, and on the back it is described in detail. Typodarium 2014 is edited by Lars Harmsen and Raban Ruddigkeit, published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz in an edition of 10,000 and is sold online and in design- and museum shops and selected bookstores around the world for €16.80. The featured fonts are: Crazy Fredericka (Tuesday 29 April), Granny’s Bear Hunt (Saturday 9 August), Broken Promises (Thursday 4 September), Featherstone (Wednesday 8 October) and Rock Paper Scissors (Wednesday 3 December).
Over the last year I have experimented with the online font-building tool Fontstruct and the font design software Glyphs Mini, building a number of experimental typefaces, three of which I used on the posters for the Paperwork, Rock Paper Scissors and Full Circle exhibitions.
Another of my typefaces Crazy Fredericka (named after the pangram Crazy Fredericka bought many very exquisite opal jewels.) was one of three winners in Fontstruct’s Stencilfont Competition.
