    Found some time to work on the italic and bold of Tenso Grotesk.

    'k Ben nooit echt een fan van bold lettertypen geweest maar die lichte versies zien er heel goed uit!

    Looks great Jos! I love the overly compensated full curves on letters like /a/c/r/f/etc. It gives it a nice feel that sets it apart from many other typefaces.

    What are your plans in terms of number of fonts? IMO a typeface is full with as little as 3 - 4 fonts (Regular & Bold + Italics) but of course the more weights available the more versatile it is. Looking forward to seeing some more updates.

    Thanks, Joe! I think I would like to see this typeface in 8-10 fonts. At least 4 weights with 4 italics.

    That's great. So I'm just curious, why are you working on the bold version rather than an extra bold or black? I'm assuming you're going to interpolate the middle weights (correct me if I'm mistaken). Who doesn't love interpolation? :)

    :) Yes, I usually use the regular and bold for interpolation (semi-bold) and also extrapolation. The light and black need a bit of extra care but it works best for me.

    Very interesting because I thought most designers focused more on interpolation rather than extrapolation. I've found in the past that extrapolation requires ten-fold more cleanup than interpolation. Well maybe that's why your letters turn out so beautiful and lovely in the end...cheers Jos.

    I guess every type designer has his own preferred method :) Thanks for the kind words, Joe!
