List of type designers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A type designer (sometimes mistakenly referred to as a typographer), is a person who designs typefaces. Some type designers are employed by type foundries, or operate them. Others work independently. A partial list of type designers follows by country, with a signature typeface (or two for significant designers). Schools of type design sometimes developed in specific western nations, but type design generally has not been defined by nationality.
