Information about the typeface designer Miles Newlyn and his fonts.
Miles Newlyn graduated from St Martins College of Art, London, in 1991. He first released Missionary, Sabbath Black, and Democratica through Emigre, and then designed a set of six typefaces for David Carson to use in Raygun.
Newlyn quickly appropriated many of his ideas to the corporate sector, branding in particular. After some some years working with London agencies, and Wolff Olins in particular, he developed a style termed 'white occult', a blend of meta-organic forms and hi-tech typography. Newlyn continues to explore and expand this vision, and utilizes the results for corporate clients worldwide.
