ISTD judge Freda Sack: “A spirited rendition of a lively calligraphic typeface, exhibiting a sense of fun with the accompanying ornaments, and the ‘cross-out’ version. One of the few typefaces entered that displayed its content to best effect, even to the extent of showing cartoon-like portraits entirely created from the typeface characters. It also shows appropriate use of OpenType format by fully exploiting the extended character set.”
