His final year's research study was based on David Kindersley's (and Dr Neil Wiseman at Cambridge University Computer Centre) Optical Letter-Spacing System, considering the possibility of a new Japanese/Latin font design and typesetting system. Working at Banks & Miles graphic design company in London between 1979 and 1985, he redesigned Johnston Underground Sans for text setting as well as display use, now known as New Johnston; and carried out the feasibility study for space saving and legibility for BT telephone directory, proving that Matthew Carter's Bell Centennial was (still is) the best suited typeface for the purpose.
