I wanted my designs to be minimal and classic, hence the use of Gill Sans, which is a legible, familiar typeface. This font was also used by Jan Tschichold for the Penguin Classics covers, and so has comforting, traditional connotations that I wanted to be present in my designs. I chose primary colours to appeal to young children, but the pared down tones are more subtle than pillar-box red or cobalt blue, and therefore appeal more to a parent’s eye.
