Information about the typeface designer Robert Schenk and his fonts.
Robert Schenk began developing PostScript typefaces in 1988, and released his first fonts as shareware for the Macintosh. In 1990 he published typefaces with Educorp, and in 1993 he developed a CD of 150 fonts, Font Pro 2, which was published by Wayzata Technology. This was followed by a second CD of 125 typefaces, Font Pro 3, and a third CD of 150 typefaces, Font Pro 5.
However Wayzata went out of business in 1996, so Robert republished the fonts himself under the title No-Hype Type CD, mainly sold via on-line auctions. In 2002 Robert moved the fonts to MyFonts.com, where they are now available individually.
Robert is currently Professor of Economics at Saint Joseph's College, Rensselaer, Indiana, USA. In addition to his passion for designing typefaces he has also written programs to design mazes, and has published two books of unusual and original mazes with Dover Publications.
