With the design of the Lale dingbat typeface, my aim was to use Opentype technology to enhance the possibilities of “picture” fonts. By combining the substitution features included in ligatures, this font not only offers the basic 52 signs, but also plays with glyph combinations to offer 156 different signs that can then be combined with 30 different stems. The result, is over 4,800 design solutions that can easily be accessed simply by typing with your keyboard.
Statement of the jury
The image font is designed like a tool kit, and facilitates an incredible range of designs via the combination of the characters very simply and easily using the keyboard.
