“Evidently, LL Brown owes a lot to the type designs of both Edward Johnston and Arno Drescher, who with their Johnston and Super Grotesk each created immensely influential and successful geometric typefaces nearly one hundred years ago.
Yet Aurèle Sack was not aiming at a revival font. Using the historic predecessors for formal cues, he kept developing his hybrid more freely, adding a similarly purist and technical flavour as in some of his earlier typefaces, most notably the Futura variant he drew as Omega's corporate typeface a few years back.” — Lineto
