The idea The idea was to craete a typeface with strong negative spacing. Keep it readable and useful as a display typeface — that was the second aim. As a result I created typeface that can be installed and used as any font. But to get all the ‘magic’ you’ll have to do several steps.

In this presentation I gathered some lettering works done by hand and in digital form.

Some of them were done for commercial purposes, some were drawn as drafts and some are personal works.

Hope you’ll enjoy my lettering so don’t hesitate to contact to  let me know you do.
