I claim to have a world record in type design in speed.
When House Industries guys went about their Font Sprint in Vancouver, I promised I would trump their attempt of producing a working font in under 4 hours. They failed miserabily; they had upper and lower case letters, and most of the numerals.
I promised that if ATypI ever came to Helsinki, I would make a whole font in that time.
ATypI did come to Helsinki, so I had to put my money where my mouth was, and since I was one of the organizers, I could. This is the result:
I made a RoboFog-file with pre-demernied x-height, ascenders and descenders beforehand, but that was it. Everything else was made on site. From start to this pdf, it took me 3 hours 4 minutes.
