The joy of build scripts When writing software, there is a big difference between the human readable code, and the compiled machine readable code. The human readable code is easy to edit, while the machine readable code can only be read by complete psycos, and even there with lots of effort. In order to get from human to computer readable, there is a step called compiling. I've found this to be a useful paradigm with type design as well. The source files are my FontLab files. There are a lot of things that need to happen between my easy to edit source files and the finished exported fonts.

Lisa Guedel Dolle You studied at Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne (ECAL), what's the course like there and what have you taken from it? ECAL seems to be the perfect school for those who want to learn the essence of graphic design – typography, grids, typesetting, etc. It remains a small public art school where you can easily interact with students of all disciplines. During three intense years you learn almost all the basic design rules that allow you to develop your own practice and personal interests. I believe ECAL owes its reputation to its professors.

I knew I wanted to work with letterpress and wood type to give the identity a lo-fi raw quality. This was informed by the printed material in the band’s archive, because it was from the seventies it had a handmade analogue feel.
