Type Manager for Typekit
Big news, friends: I will soon be joining Typekit as Type Manager. I’ll be caring for the library of typefaces, talking with foundry partners, and showing Typekit off in a variety of ways.
It is with exhilaration and humility that I take a place among my web and type heroes during this pivotal moment in web and type history. Since the sensibilities of web standards and the richness of typographic tradition began to coalesce in my mind, I have felt a strong urge to participate in what I consider a reawakening of typographic art and craft.
Despite the power and promise of an accessible, open web, technical and legal hurdles have for a decade kept web design professionals apart from our heritage as typesetters and glyph connoisseurs. Now is the time for revival.
Dust off those old type books. Lean in, close to your screen. Listen as the echoes of our elders inform the freedoms we can now express, thanks to solutions like Typekit that allow us to easily choose and wield time-tested typefaces in a web-native way.
Ask me questions, show me what you’re working on, and let’s move web typography forward together.
By the way, later I’ll have more to say about my time at Vassar College, and about the future of Nice Web Type. Stay tuned.
First time here?
