    In this period I was trying to modify typefaces I liked for the SubTone clubnight in Amsterdam, inspired by work of Herb Lubalin.

    Amelia is this standard retro space font. A class of its own in recognizability. I added swashes, depth and repetition. A lot of repetition. Like a beat in the music. Like a melody you can play on & on & on.
