Grant Hutchinson's Layer 2 Commentary

Jambon Mot

Expanding the character set .. and the references to food. I’m suddenly dealing with both hunger pangs and the urge to remove some overlaps. It’s obvious from Mr Bruhn’s return volley that he has an affinity for the kitchen. You can see the ingredients he’s incorporating, building up the recipe bit by bit, curve by curve, node by node. (There’s an easy joke in there about ‘à la node’, but I’ll take the high road.) Being able to grab a glimpse of the inner workings of typeface design is a special treat, but how will Peter’s seemingly minor additions to the font help or hinder Mark’s next move.

It’s your slice of ham, Mr Simonson. What will you serve with it now?
