A new site more than ten years after the previous one has to be different. I had conceived that at the start of a new working adventure: full-time type metrics engineer.
This one, on the other hand, is more of a reflection on the journey. And, above all, clarification of ideas. To make sense of them.
But once I finished the new, I thought I had to save a few bits of the old. They ended up here.
First of all, a photograph of Jos Buivenga and me. The professional adventure started with him. And also a friendship.
Which is related to Henrik Kubel's note:
«The iKern system is now an integral part of how we space and kern our fonts – most importantly it gives me time to concentrate on other parts of the design. Great thanks to Jos Buivenga for recommending Igino to me at the ATypI conference in Dublin – it's literally the best thing that happened in 2010, font wise.»
It's about the importance of the intrinsic social network we're all in: the word of mouth—a network where others talk about you.
Then another photograph, a souvenir of a lovely evening in a pizzeria. (And more with Luciano!)
In photo from left: Dave Crossland, now at the Google Font Directory, come in Urbino to visit Luciano for his http://www.campivisivi.net/titillium/ fame, me, Paolo Mazzetti (among the collaborators for the Sole serif project) and Luciano Perondi (april 2010).
