Digitizing Tempest for the first time, Toshi made no changes to Wolpe’s basic alphabet, but created a small group of alternate letters with extravagant swashes – flourishes on entry and exit strokes – for adding extra dash to book titles, logotypes and headlines. He also developed regular, bold and black weights, taking care to preserve the original Tempest’s unmistakable profile and skeleton. “You can’t go too thin because the round endings disappear, and they are what give Tempest its character. The energy of the strokes diminishes with weight.”
