I set strong rules for myself – and love the architecture of the Baroque.
I fundamentally think rationally – but love the strange and the absurd.
I love wit – but hate people’s grin.
I appreciate clarity and transparency – but publish a book under a pseudonym.
I often approach typography like a concrete painting – and propagate the deconstruction of the rule.
I can’t imagine typography without keeping an eye on art and architecture.
