Patrick Griffin, Canada Type: «Igino Marini’s iKern system trumps every other font metrics method I’ve seen. Its advantage points over other fitting and kerning systems range from exception-aware mathematical modules to speedy global counterspace tweaking precision. It’s one of those things where the fonts you send in are all out of whack, and when you get them back they slap you awake with how much sense they make. And there’s a cherry on top: This great system couldn’t have been developed by a nicer or more accommodating guy. Igino truly is the Walter Tracy of the digital type era. Type designers who have worked with him know for a fact that we are very lucky to have him.»
