Another interpretation would be…
If you define typeface design, and that definition is freely creating work through careful technique, this typeface would not be considered design. Of course, I don’t think of the definition of typeface design in that way. I drew all the letters by hand. There is not one letter that has been misconstrued. I kept the ‘A’ in the Thin, Regular, and Fat versions the same and didn’t make them thicker or thinner. Still, I think I succeeded in making these distorted letters into a font set. As for the reason why, it’s because they were letters written by a single human being. I didn’t design this typeface. That’s because it means it would have to have been made by applying elaborate techniques. I drew it randomly and easily on a piece of paper, using a PILOT brand Super Petit felt-tip pen I had on hand. I didn’t have to tear it up and rewrite it over and over. I used the letters that I had written there and then. It’s unsteady, but I believe has its own harmony somehow.
