Description

The Lobster font took a different approach. The new OpenType format gives us the possibility to have multiple versions of each letter, and that’s exactly what we are doing: Instead of compromising the design of our letters to force connections, we do what lettering artist do. We draw many versions of each letter and a lot of different letter-pairs (aka “ligatures”) so we always use the best possible variation of each letter depending of the context of the letter inside each word. All this happens automatically in any browser that supports ligatures. Design: Pablo Impallari. Cyrillic design by Alexei Vanyashin and Gayaneh Bagdasaryan (adding support for Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Macedonian, Moldovan, and Serbian languages).

Pablo Impallari

Pablo Impallari is a self taught type designer, still learning through books, blogs, forums & detailed observation, with the help of friend and colleagues. He thinks that typefaces are living beings, they always continue to evolve over time. Even if the original designer died over 500 years ago, contemporary designers push their ideas forward, adapting to changing technology and keeping up with the always shifting way we perceive the alphabet. Pablo continues to actively design and release his own typefaces and help other designers learn and publish new fonts.
