John Jones about Taut™:
"The illustration above shows the horizontal grid of the font. The font was originally hand-drawn in pen and ink at a height of a 80 mm with 1 mm-thick outlines. Diagonals are angled at 30° or 60°. It was then digitally re-mastered by Linotype.
Taut outline is the version shown in the diagramme; Taut regular and Taut shadow are based on the same principles.
Taut was originally named "Mies" after the great architect Mies van der Rohe, whose designs inspired the geometric simplicity of the font. "Mies" has an unfortunate meaning in the German language and so "Taut" was chosen as the final name for the font, after the Bauhaus architect Bruno Taut. In Taut, I have attempted to marry this geometry and a 30’s personality with the stylish graphic adventures of the 90’s."
