The largest and most com­plex type­face Saw­dust has ever made, Quainton is made up of 350 glyphs. “The be­gin­nings of Quainton took place some years ago,” says Saw­dust co-founder Jonathan Quainton, who says he be­gan ex­per­i­ment­ing with blend­ing type­faces Di­done and Bauhaus in the hope of tak­ing them some­where new. The work was shelved and re­cently resur­faced when the de­sign pair were or­gan­is­ing work. “Af­ter all that time and look­ing at it with fresh eyes, we felt there was some­thing spe­cial in those ini­tial work­ings and so set about fin­ish­ing the de­sign,” says Quainton’s part­ner Rob Gon­za­lez. The duo found that set­ting per­sonal dead­lines helped them fit the project in be­tween clients, and say they are look­ing for­ward to see­ing how oth­ers en­vis­age us­ing the fin­ished type­face.
