“Thy can talk about fonts all day!”

Well, not only talking about them, but I also spend really long time drawing fonts. As a native speaker, I often collaborate with type designers and foundries on creating typefaces that need Vietnamese support under my own type design practice – Mai Type. As type design is still perceived as a "Western-centric" discipline, I hope to minimise the dissimilarity gap between markets in the future.

In my free days, I love spending time discussing type-related matters with Lưu Chữ, Counter Forms and Modern Type.

MT Mighty Mono

Website Text
Mighty Mono is a low-contrast, geometric monospaced typeface. It is my interpretation with the letterforms that I have been familiar with since primary school in Vietnam, such as the ‘i’ with the little tail, or the single- storey ‘a’ and ‘g’.
