Tempeh is a reverse-contrast typeface intended for display purposes.The typeface is inspired by chisel-edged marker notes with an added pinch of funky umami!

This typeface was created under the guidance of Graham Bradley at Letterform Archive as a part of their type design course (I strongly recommend trying it out if you have the chance).
