From Cornel Windlin from LINETO

IDN: What is your philosophy on typography?

CW: "Many typographers show behavioral traits that include obsessive orderliness, rigidity, obstinacy, obsession with rules, excessive meticulousness and general ungenerousness. These characteristics correspond to Freud's definition of anal retention. Lineto strives for non-anal retention. Lineto strives for non-anal typography. We create our own tools for designing with type. After using them ourselves, we make them available for others to use."
