In a globalised world, icons are becoming increasingly important to bridge languages and writing systems. With the release of my typeface Logical, I followed a personal interest in how languages can be translated into symbolic forms. I developed this further through an invitation from Richard Niessen to curate the Annex of Universal Languages at the Palace of Typographic Masonry.
