Several years ago I was faced with a project that required very small type to be used in a directory. In general, there was a need for a lot of ‘fine print’. Faced with this, all of the tests I was making with existing faces was producing to much bleed of the individual glyphs ... Cynapse was born.
It evolved into this pseudo-techy looking type that standardized and glorified the ink trap (the small, tiny allowances of white space that reduces the amount of ink hitting the page,and in effect, reducing the appearance of bleed). The results was promising. Last year, the family was expanded to include Small Caps and a revised Italics.About the designer:
