Late last year I began a correspondence with Evert Bloemsma in which he announced changes to his newly launched website and graciously accepted the comments I sent in reply. His enthusiasm was contagious. His work — FF Balance, FF Cocon, FF Avance, FF Legato (TDC05 winner and one of our favorites) — had become increasingly advanced and usable over time. It felt like he was just getting started.
Mr. Bloemsma died last week at age 47. It’s a massive loss for original type design.
