Why Not Let a Sleeping Dog Lie?
Is this typeface already out in the world? Yes. Then why not leave it alone? Because it could use a “fresh coat of paint”. I’m not saying mine is perfect by any means or even better than SoloType’s. It’s just different. I’ve added a few extra characters. My numbers a bit different. But most importantly: It’s mine. I own it. To me, it’s the beginning of something beautiful. And maybe one day, I’ll add to it.
