Grant Hutchinson's Layer 9 Commentary


With a broom, dustpan, and bucket of sawdust befitting a grade school custodian, Mark Simonson has managed something I didn’t think was going to happen before the end of the match. To call this something as obvious as a redesign does not do it justice. Set before you is a typeface which has been decontaminated, buffed, trimmed, toned, soaked in epson salts, exfoliated, and taken on a trip to Disneyland. This is bold, baby. Bold the way it was intended. You can literally feel the annoying, confusing typographic detritus sliding into the past.

Oh, wait a minute ... you can actually see that, I suppose.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Grant Hutchinson.
