[1999] The idea here was to get rid of base-lines and letter heights to make it look almost as if the characters were dancing on paper. While designing the font, I had to be very direct without having to bother about issues such as construction or form. So, I made words quickly, clicking with the mouse, drawing several times the same letters so they would interact with each other. This direct approach resulted in a paper-cut effect.
