João Symington is a graphic designer and type designer, born in London, England, raised in Porto, Portugal, and currently residing in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. His roots are generally in advertising and graphic design, but has started to dabble in the type design field.
Establishing his type foundry the moment he published his first typeface, João and JAM Type have been on an upward trajectory ever since. JAM’s popular typefaces Toma Sans, Andis, and JT Leonor have generated a lot of attention in the design community of late and João hopes to continue to develop as a type designer and produce beautiful and effective typefaces.
