"The idea about Celeste is that it refers to the tradition of the 'modern face' -in the sense of traditional type classification; meaning that it has vertical stress. Yet it has the hint of a calligraphic element: to use the terms of the Swiss type theorists, it has a combination of the static and dynamic principles".

I didn't realize how long and arduous the process of creating fonts were and how technical it can get. Especially when you view the more typical fonts of everyday usage. Sometimes it just all looks the same.. That is, until you learn about it.
