About Torleiv Sverdrup (1959) - Torleiv Sverdrup has been a freelance graphic designer for more than 20 years. Since 2005, he has spent most of his time working on type design. "I get inspiration wherever I go. Whenever I get an idea, I start from scratch, working with just a couple of letters. These letters then serve as a "matrix" for the remaining letters. The final result is often quite different from my initial idea, as I let things evolve as they go. The creative process is the drive, the engine, of my work: it is like a voyage during which you have enter many hitherto unknown ports of call."
