This manual work came from Max Kostopoulos from Hamburg. He had a strong focus on analog design techniques always, as in type design workshops lectured together with Jakob. Several versions of letters with various brushes were drawn and some studies on the ideal conversion of the analog grayscale images in monochrome vectors were necessary to the finally make Cera Brush happen. Last but not least some OpenType code finishes the font to digitally mimic the natural variation of handwritten lettering.
