What is your direction in graphic design? How would you characterize your style?
I can't possibly place myself within one direction or style, but I'm lead, and so is my work, by a hardcore belief in the relevance of the contemporary visual language and the ongoing process of always redefining the conventions. I try to never seek comfort in the retrospective or nostalgic.

Can you give us a short description about your font?
Kit Fat is s strange fruit built around a limited set of forms drawing its personality from the overly exaggerated ink-traps.
Why did you design this font and what was your inspiration?
Kit Fat is the result of the researching of forms put together to work typographically.
What was this font intended for and what was the main idea behind designing the font.
Idea? No intentions, no idea to start with. Only playing with principles. Then one thing lead to another…
What is the ideal usage of your font?
A display typeface that works like an instant logo machine - any combination of characters look smashing.
Where does the name come from?
Kit Fat is one in a series built around a 'kit' of common forms, this being the fattest of them. Ergo: Kit Fat.
Do you think that too many fonts exist?
