Thoughts and facts about iKern, typography or whatever else it may happen.
InfoI'm Igino Marini. I was born in 1964. I attended the high school specializing in classical studies: so before handling the polytonic greek I learned to translate it! Then I graduated in Civil Engineering. In 2000 I became more involved in typography digitizing the Fell Types. Realizing that I would have never wanted to devote myself to the their letterfitting I started since 2002 to deal with spacing and kerning in an engineered way. That's how the iKern project started. In 2010, after a career in building and industrial engineering, I finally became a full-time type engineer. I abandoned columns and beams, trajectories of robots or energy flows; but I never ceased to translate reality into numbers. Since 2012 I'm teaching Maths for Design at ISIA Urbino.
