AlphaBravo was born on a napkin.
I was just doodling, playing around with letterforms when the ballpoint glided a little bit too far and suddenly I had my first letter with the dash sticking out on the left of the e’s horizontal line.
I quickly checked on how many letters I could let a line stick out!
Then I wrote a couple of words that way and letters joined in the most unusual places, creating new closed forms. I gave the font a try and quickly discovered, that I had stumbled onto an interesting new typeface. I didn’t know how to call it, so I simply used the first two letters of the alphabet, Alpha and Bravo.
Looking forward to Charlie and Delta,
your very curious, Gert Wiescher.
