Hey and welcome to issue 18 👋
Welcome, June. It finally feels like the summer is near. I just love warm and nice weather, spending some time outside in nature and just enjoying it. Recently a lot of stuff is happening altogether. On Monday 3rd June I will dive right into my job, I am so excited. At the end of June, I will finally make my bachelor’s degree in Information design. I cannot believe three years are already over. June 2019 marks a huge new step in my life and I am ready for it. 😊

Typeface of the week
Published by Rosetta Type, Adapter packs a wide range of weights, italics, and text and display variants into a single lightweight font file that supports Cyrillic, Greek, and Latin – with Arabic and Hebrew coming later this year. Also, to illustrate its potential, David Březina created a poster – automating its drawing using Adapter’s variable font and Python/Drawbot script.
