Typography Portfolio

I have developed twelve digital typefaces, some full character sets and others with limited sets for project specific applications. A solid knowledge of both readability and legibility issues are necessary in the creation of experimental typographic forms, hand drawn lettering, illustrative typographic applications, and font creation.

This portfolio has been specifically edited to represent my typographic experience.
There are examples of:
graduate studies / publication design / type design / font development / educational resources +type dominant projects.
