1800 Hofstede


Pete Nicholson is a writer and sometime editor based in Melbourne, Australia. He writes on a diverse range of topics in both fiction and non-fiction. The design of this website features numerous print conventions such as page spreads to evoke the feeling of a book, without resorting to obvious stylistic cues. The typography specification is carefully considered; Radim Pesko’s idiosyncratic Larish Neue was chosen for its slightly subversive character, whilst Lyon Text plays the workhorse role for body copy.
