"While finishing up Ketchupa and Mustardo, I started to play around with parts of the characters – suddenly I had the basis for a new typeface. I had also worked on some arrows, and other dingbats that couldn't find any room in the character set of the fonts. I chose to use them in Mayo instead, and to expand the reign of symbols. With the integration of borders you could say Mayo became half typeface, half dingbat."
