Dala Prisma came from a sketch Paul Barnes had for applying the idea of Rudolf Koch’s Prisma to the stencil forms of his own Dala Floda. Commercial Type asked me to take Paul’s idea and turn it into a full typeface family aided by a purpose built tool made by Frederik Berlaen, the creator of Robofont. The project was an exciting design challenge, leading to delightful solutions such as the ggy ligature for the Black Italic weight.
