Short post about the favorite letters drawn

Short post about the favorite letters drawn by H&FJ type designers, including the awesomely named Sulzbacher Eszett character.

The designers at H&FJ are often asked if there are particular letters that we especially enjoy drawing. Office doodles testify to the popularity of the letter R, perhaps because it synopsizes the rest of the alphabet in one convenient package (it’s got a stem, a bowl, serifs both internal and external, and of course that marvelous signature gesture, the tail.)

I would love to see a collection of those office doodles.
