I’m Thomas Phinney, a typographer and type designer. I am Vice President of FontLab, the font tools company, and consult for clients worldwide.
From 1997-2008 I worked in the type group at Adobe Systems, and from 2009-2014 I was at Extensis. Particular typographic interests include OpenType and American Type Founders. My great-grandfather George R. Lawrence has a nice Wikipedia page.
