Grandmother type

Just before leaving the KABK in The Hague, I was tought to work in Fontographer. This was a major freedom in playing around with type. The first time I used this new sense of freedom was for a Rietveld assignment. In 2001 Experimental Jetset asked us to make a fanzine. I digitalised my grandmothers handwriting for the design of a fanzine about her. It doesn't work really well as a typeface, but I still think it does work as a good design solution for the content. Funny thing was, my grandmother couldn't remember all the letters of the alphabet.
