“When I was first given the letter Q I noticed the banding at the top formed a rainbow. In a very simple way this seemed to convey all that is good about this font. I then spent a long time adding landscape and details, none of which did anything but detract from the simplicity of the first idea. In the end the beauty of the font and the idea behind it were left to speak for themselves.”
