Background

Like Corey’s other typefaces, Compunabula began as a rejected logo for a client. He couldn’t let go of the design and tried to use it for other projects, but it “never felt right.” Still, he decided to explore it and see what happened. “I spent a marathon session, with little to no sleep, getting the basics of it down.” Corey’s friend (and fellow maker) Grant Hutchinson provided some technical and aesthetic feedback during the final stages, and “found a couple of errors that no rational person would have made, which I blame on my sleep deprivation. Once I realized that it was viable, the rest came easy.”
