Using Simplon Mono as a basis, custom glyphs were created in order to emulate the sounds created by a stammerer through reading. The Swiss typeface was used for its monospaced width, allowing for the appropriate elongations and repetitions of glyphs to be made.
The type specimens that showcase Simplon Stammer are designed to show the altered glyphs off as much as possible. The use of a fold to create the elongated/repeated characters differentiates the specimen from any other. Its long form provides the perfect space for Simplon Stammer’s characters that for the most part are quite dragged out.
